Light at the end of the tunnel

Clear skies on Hurricane Ridge Road

Brother and sister Bob and Mary Hedgecock from the Seattle area find light at the end of the Hurricane Ridge Road tunnel Monday, Sept. 14, 2020, as they take advantage of clear skies at 5,242 feet above sea level to shoot a couple of shots of the Olympic Mountains.

The Hurricane Ridge webcam on Tuesday showed a much different scene, with smoke darkening the area.

Meteorologist Maddie Kristell with the National Weather Service in Seattle said that the smoke layer is about 6,000 feet deep, but can vary, getting as thin as 4,000 feet at some places and times.
