Brad and myself went to drive up the auto road knowing it was open only to the winter cut off but what a surprise when we puled up to pay he said the road was open to the summit [ only for an hour before we got there and that was about 1pm ]
lets just say we were very happy . we got to say hi to every one up there but Ryan was sound a sleep [ sorry we missed you ]

Where you guys the first to drive to the summit this year as visitors? That would have been pretty cook knowing that you were number 1 this year to reach the summit via automobile.

There were 4 or 5 cars in the parking lots when we got to the summit. So, we were not the first but pretty close to it. One of the objectives was to get the MWO-STP Suby up to take pictures. They are uploaded now to http://public.fotki.com/bradbradstreet/travels/2010/2010-05-17-auto-road/

We were hoping the road would be open to the halfway point. That would have been a great day. But, being able to get to the summit for Opening Day was a real treat. Brian and Ken were good enough to let us in and roam around a bit even though they were not staffed for visitors. Most of the crew were off working on technical issues at Lakes of the Clouds. So, thanks for letting us share being at your home & work location.

Does that mean the cafeteria and stuff is open as well? I hate to hike to the top if it's not open. :D

The restrooms were open is all when we were there. Check the State Park web site for the date you will be there to see when it opens.
