Road to Artist Point set for earliest opening in history

WSDOT:
Most years our crews will encounter 30 to 50 feet of snow along the 2.7-mile road from our winter gate to the parking lot at the top. Last year when we opened the road on July 1, drivers went through a canyon of snow walls up to 40 feet tall and the parking lot was surrounded by about 30 feet of snow. For much of the past month there was been no snow at the gate, two to four feet going up the road and about 10 feet in the parking lot.

This is a beautiful and fun ride if you're up for it.
