Weekend visitors will find the Nisqually Road in excellent condition from the Park Entrance to Narada Falls where steamshovels continue clearing the snow on the road to Paradise. At the falls you may park your cars for a short stop to enjoy "snow-ball battles" and "face washings" on the hugh banks that line the road, or make a day of it and hike over the snow trail to Paradise Valley where skiing is still in vogue. In order to complete road oiling before the heavy summer travel starts the road will not be open above Longmire between Monday and Saturday mornings.
Four miles of snow to Sunrise describes the progress of road clearing on the White River road which is now open to White River Bridge. A two mile hike to the terminus of the Winthrop Glacier will whet up your appetite for lunch.
The Carbon River road, although a little rough, is open to Ipsut Creek Camp where the picnickers may park and hikers take the trail to Ipsut Pass and Mowich Lake or follow the road to Olson's Cabin and the snout of the Carbon Glacier.
