Hwy. 20 above us that winds over the Cascade mountains and passes into eastern Washington is closed seasonally. Usually around the first part of December – though depending on the weather sometimes by Thanksgiving – until April or May.

This was a a huge slide that brought down rocks and trees and was 40 feet high over the highway.
