Photos: Opening of Windy Ridge Viewpoint Provides for Stunning Views


The Windy Ridge Viewpoint at Mount St. Helens reopened this week. “Forest Road 99, Windy Ridge is now open for the season,”  the U.S. Forest Service announced.  “Please be aware that winter was hard on things up there and some road and recreation signs are down; it will take Forest Service staff some time to get them all repaired, particularly with the lumber shortage right now.  Visitors hiking from the Norway Pass trailhead will likely hit some snow in about 1.5 miles. So be prepared.”
