Whatcom County, Wash. – The last stretch of the Mount Baker Highway to Artist Point is now open.
The state Department of Transportation says crews cleared 20 to 40 feet of snow in spots on the last 2.7 miles of the highway, and snow-walled canyons remain in places along the road.
There is also a lot of snow at Artist Point, a popular destination for its spectacular views and hiking.
It’s one of the earliest openings ever for the stretch of highway, which is only open during the summer months.
