Saturday, March, 22, 2014. 10:36 a.m. A moment in time. Before that moment 43 children, women, and men were living ordinary lives. After that moment in time, the world changed for dozens of people. This post is a story of tragedy in northwestern Washington state. It is also a story of the aftermath, rescue, and remembrance, a story about a living memorial at Steelhead Drive and State Route 530.
State Route 530 runs northeast from Arlington, past the Oso Slide, to Darrington, where it turns north to Rockport. This post, the fourth in a series on SR 530, looks at the stretch from Darrington to Rockport.
