Mowich Lake Road in the northwest corner of Mount Rainier National Park will open to the public on Friday.

In average snow years, the road would have been opened by the Fourth of July weekend.

This year, however, has been far from normal. Three to four feet of snow remain in the area, but the parking lot is clear and some picnic tables are melted out, said a park news release.
