STATE PARKS -- A good clean photo of the Quartz Mountain lookout in Mount Spokane State Park is difficult to achieve without getting the darned outhouse in the picture, said Cris Currie, head of the Friends of Mount Spokane State Park.

But this year's deep snowpack spelled RELIEF.

"The outhouse is completely covered by snow!" he said, flushed with enthusiasm after skiing to the the peak's summit this week and getting the purest shot of the lookout he's ever seen.
