The road to Hurricane Ridge opened up again a few weeks ago after being closed for about 6 weeks. A major slide carried away most of both lanes of the narrow, winding highway during the storm of January 18th and repairs were completed enough to reopen the road on February 26th. After almost $2 million dollars in repairs, the road she is ready to drive again.

Which brings us to what may be the best part: Entrance fees at the ONP Hurricane Ridge entrance will be waived for the last two weekends in March (20-21 and 27-28). That’s a $15 fee that you can keep in your pocket, maybe put in your gas tank.

We bought the annual pass, so the price break holds no immediate gain for our family. But if it gets someone up there who might otherwise not have gone, it may be a gain for everybody.
