Olympic Hot Springs: ONP hopes to open the Hot Springs Road by Saturday

Several vehicles belonging to park visitors were marooned in snow along the Whiskey Bend and Olympic Hot Spring roads in the Elwha Valley.

Power lines are also down in the Elwha Valley.

Park rangers, road, and trail crews are working to clear numerous trees that fell across several park roads under the snow load.

One man's pickup became mired in the snow along the Olympic Hot Springs road.

He abandoned the vehicle only to learn that a tree later crushed the cab.

Superintendent Bill Laitner says crews are working to safely remove trapped cars and downed trees.
