WINTER SPORTS -- While fog shrouded low-lying ares in the region Saturday, local snowshoer Don Story climbed to the summit of Mount Spokane for sunshine and sweeping views. Here's his comment:

Gorgeous day on the mountain Saturday. We went up 131 to the summit. Great time, but were disappointed to find the Vista House not open yet. What's up with that?
