Visitors to the northeast corner of Mount Rainier National Park can still find a place to grab a snack on weekends.
The Sunrise Day Lodge is open today and will be open weekends only through the end of the month, as long as the weather cooperates, said park superintendent Randy King. The lodge will be able to offer limited food service because of the seasonal shutdown of the generator that powers the Sunrise area.
The lodge will be open beginning at 11 a.m. Closing will depend on the number of visitors each day, but the lodge will likely close by 6 p.m.
People in the area, however, will not be able to stop at the Sunrise Visitor Center.
That has been closed for the season to allow a contractor to install a fire suppression system in the building.
