PUBLIC LANDS — The recent summer weather around the Pacific Northwest has melted snow and allowed for Mount Rainier National Park staff to open multiple facilities ahead of schedule.
The Sunrise Road, Sunrise Lodge and Sunrise Visitor Center all opened to the public Friday, according to Mount Rainier Superintendent Randy King.
Other openings that are ahead of schedule include Cougar Rock Campground, Narada Falls Trail and White River Campground, which also opened on Friday. Mowich Lake Road is set to open Wednesday.
The other areas in the park already open include Ohanapecosh, Paradise, Longmire and Carbon River.
