565-3131 busy, 565-3131 busy, 565-3131 busy, 565-3131 busy....

well, i called the hurricane ridge road condition line upteen times to check when or if the hurricane ridge road will open.  finally, yes it's open.  i passed the word on.
we met at the visitor center and off we went on a bit of an icy hurricane ridge road.  it was gorgeous!  sunshine, a balmy 25 degrees, and no wind!

we headed out from the lodge after checking out the skiiers and snowboarders at sunrise.
after taking the token photos, we were off!

susie was on call for mountain rescue and we wanted to keep her company.

did i mention that it was a beautiful day?  we headed out towards steep and icy.  today it was just wonderful powder, dry-dry-dry! i took about a hundred pictures but my flickr account is full...lucky you!

a snowshoe photo for silly traveller! note two left shoes or is it right.
i'm happy i opted to head to the ridge today.  it's these rare sunny winter days that i'm glad to live in such a beautiful place of the USA!

the road is open all the time unless they are plowing it or deem it not safe for travel. they also sometimes require chains. it is open everyday of the week unless they decide to close it for conditions or work.

mama... take one of the free two hour snowshoe walks that they give at Paradise and Snoqualmie Pass... take a couple of poles with you... they provide good balance.
