North Cascades Highway
The Rainy Pass part of the North Cascades Highway is still closed and probably won’t open until next week. A 10 mile section of Highway 20 got covered in mud, trees and rocks after a slide triggered by a thunderstorm. That’s bad news for tourist areas like Winthrop. Travelers can still reach Winthrop from the east side of the mountains and can get quite a ways into the mountains before the closure but business is down because they can’t be reached by tourists from the west side of the state.
