If you haven’t already heard, or read on the Mount Rainier National Park website, the current heavy snowpack has caused a delay in the opening Cougar Rock Campground. Lucky for us we have an awesome staff and dedicated volunteers from The Evergreen State College working side by side with shovels in hand to get the campground open by Friday, June 3rd.
With up to three feet of snow still sitting in some areas of the campground and rain falling from the sky, thirty (plus) students have enthusiastically spent the past two days digging out campsites within the campground. This is the first of several projects this group will be dedicating volunteer time towards this upcoming summer.
A big thank you for all of your hard work this week and we look forward to working with you throughout the season!
