Read this before heading outside this weekend

The Washington Trails Association just posted a really useful roundup of road conditions for the weekend.

The I-5 bridge collapse over the Skagit River complicates travel, of course. There’s a map for detours.

Also, you can check out what roads are open and get a great list of resources for how to get more information.

And in case you were wondering, yes, the Mountain Loop Highway is open, all the way around.

Find that all here.
