"Go East 542", as the locals say and enjoy the drive. The falls are beautiful and impressive to see during the Spring runoff. The last Sunday in May is the Ski to Sea from Mount Baker to Bellingham. The race is the world's first and original relay race and the highway is closed to vehicles so racers are given a safe road during the relay race. Check with the WSDOT for any road closures since the weather can cause problems on the highway in the rainy season. Enjoy your drive and views! It's worth it!!
