Many of us have cabin fever from the long winter, and now it’s easier to hit the open road up on the popular Cascade Lakes Highway. Tuesday, crews opened the gates to the highway at noon. It's been a long winter, and Deschutes County spokesperson Anna Johnson says the route is always pristine, but with 6-7 foot snow banks, it may be a little bit more of a mountain adventure than usual right now: “They need to remember that the trailheads around Cascade Lakes Highway, as well as the campgrounds and the parking areas may be covered with snow and ice so don't get y our hopes up too much. There is some access, but it's not 100%.”

And with all of that snowmelt, the County also warns you to watch for wet pavement and icy roads.
