I know people in Seattle who patiently wait for Washington Pass to open so they can get there. “It’s for the awesome drive, up the mountains, down the Methow valley,” they say. We all know it’s really for the Bakery. Great for replenishing calories lost by hiking.

Looks like next week is “open-the-gates” week for many Washington scenic access areas.
Break out those boots, everyone – I mean snowshoes!
