Washington SR 20 - April 17 2010 and April 25 2011

This is a photograph I took last April on opening day for the North Cascades Highway Washington State Route 20. The front end loader is clearing off a minor avalanche in the background.

This is a photograph from WA DOT taken this April. It's going to be awhile before the road opens this year.

All the rain we are getting this spring translates into more snow up on the highway. Washington Pass is over a mile high.
