I just got this note from WSDOT via the folks at Mount Rainier National Park:
“I know you have heard this before, so here we go. Once again unless Mother Nature disagrees, we will attempt opening Highway 123 Cayuse Pass at noon Friday,” wrote Vernon L Riley, assistant superintendent for Area 4 in Kent.
The pass was supposed to open last Friday, but 2 feet of snow delayed those plans. Another 6 inches of the white stuff delayed Tuesday’s planned opening.
