The road to Sunrise will open today according to the ranger at the Sunrise entrance ranger station.

It was originally scheduled to open July 3.

I spoke to the ranger yesterday before and after hiking to the Owyhigh Lakes as part of the Rainier 110 project.

If you go to Sunrise be prepared for snow on the trail. The Owyhigh Trail had snow over the trail near the campground. Sunrise (6,400 feet)is about 1,000 feet higher than the Owyhigh Lakes (5,400 feet).
