North Cascades HWY is an excellent ride BUT it has been closed lately due to some serious slides in the last month or so. In fact, there are some locals up there who were trapped in their town with no roads. Not sure how this will affect things in July but I imagine it will cause some road construction delays. An alternate is HWY w which is pretty nice as well.Originally posted by CABNFVR
Don't let the negatives stop you. WE thought looking back from North Dakota to check our porch light was kind of neat. We live in NC. Grand Coulee Dam laser light show is worth a stopover. We stayed at a motel an easy walk from the nightime show. Worth it just to see the water over the dam. But here's where you need to go. Take an extra day or two. You will not regret it. The Northern Cascade's are worth the trip. Wish we had the vacation.
