Hey! And Mount Rainier was out, still snow-capped. (There is some 35 square miles of permanent snow cover on the mountain and surroundings. The mountain is an ‘episodically active’ volcano; the last eruption estimated to have been some 1,000 years ago). The Alaskan Way viaduct’s days are numbered. The tunnel that will replace it is now scheduled for completion in February 2017, and after that the viaduct will be demolished.
