It's going to be touch and go if Artists Point will be open in time for the ascent.

This from WSDOT...

Crews took an exploratory trip to Artist point on Wednesday, April 13 and found more than 500 inches of snow in most areas of the closed road.


In 2002 the road opened August 9th. In 2011 it didn't open at all.

Well 20 will be open by late August, maybe we should head for Hart's Pass. =)

Maybe we should plan a dry-run around the Mt. Loop Highway whenever the snow is clear there.

Worse case scenario, we con Larry into getting his Tudor snowmobile out of the museum, so we can pave a trail��

We are getting closer! If you are going please call the contact number on our website
(www.moonona.org)..If you know somebody who is going please tell them to call our
phone number on our website. Also if you're going please get a forestry pass before the
event. US Forestry HQ will be on the way but the more people who have them the better.
Thanks, Benny

Thanks, Benny
The US National Park Service Senior Pass is currently $10 for life!...

It provides access to more than 2,000 recreation sites managed by six federal agencies:

National Park Service
US Fish & Wildlife Service
Bureau of Land Management
Bureau of Reclamation
US Forest Service (Including parking at our destination...Artists Point)
US Army Corps of Engineers

Also, you will get free admission for up to 3 other adults in your car and any kids under 16 plus discounts on camping, guided tours, etc.

It's quite a bargain!

However, the cost changes on August 28th from $10 to $80. This is one change in a package of policy changes to defund of our parks that was recently implemented.

Get yours now...even if you are unable to accompany us on the Reliability Run up Mt. Baker.

A Senior Pass can be purchased on line or through the mail here...

https://store.usgs.gov/senior-pass

...or at any of the above field offices including the USFS office in Glacier on the way to Artists Point.

If you are not 62 or older or don't ever intend to visit a federal park or site again, a day pass to visit Artists Point is $5 and can be purchased on line here...

Can I assume this National Pass has no use for getting into state parks?

At least not Washington State state parks. We have an annual pass for that purpose. $30/year. Other states may have similar.

http://discoverpass.wa.gov/31/About-the-Pass

A day pass is $10 so if you go to more than 3 of the listed places the pass is good for...you win. Between the parks, trail heads, boat launches, etc., mine pays for itself many times over.

We will probably leave the start in groups from 9:30-10:15 so we don't tie up the highway too badly. should take about 1.5 hours to Artists Point if no stops are made on the way. 2 hours if a stop at the Forest Service is required.

If you turned right around and went back down, you could be back to the starting point in another 1.5 hours. you had a leisurely picnic lunch at the top, then made some stops on the way down (like at Nooksack Falls or some of the view points), add another 1.5 hours.

Plus I don't know how long the snow ball fight is going to last between Dick and I.It might take a while, I owe him a few Benny

Ok, that would give me plenty of time to drive down hwy 9 and then on home from woodinville. I don't want to drive 350 miles in one day, nor spend two nites in a motel. The evergreen club found a place in Bellingham for $74, a nite, so I think I'll go up with them on tues, but just drive home on wed after the tour. I think some are thinking of driving the whole thing all on wed. Now, I just need to convince the wife!

I completely agree, Benny. It might take a while for you to hit me with a snowball.

BTW, I was up to Artists Point again today. I was the sag wagon for my daughter's annual bike ride to Artists Point. The snow is melting fast.

I do not. I'm thinking maybe 6?..or there could be more? Canadians are sneaky and they maybe just down playing just to get a jump on us...but jokes on them they might not get a doughnut..Wow 15 from Seattle..is that Evergreens and Gerties combined? B
