Cayuse Pass reopened today after crews spent more than two months clearing snow, avalanches and debris from the scenic route through Mount Rainier National Park.
The 4,675-foot pass opened at noon. The route provides access to the east side of Mount Rainier and is a popular shortcut between Enumclaw and U.S. 12.
Crews close the pass during the winter months, however, because of the heavy snow fall.
