There has been some confusion with Hwy 20 and if it is open. From Seattle (Burlington and Arlington turns to Winthrop and Twisp, Hwy 20 is open, the favorite loop around the Mountains continues on 153 to Pateros where is changes again to 97, then on through Chelan to Wenatchee where it changes to Hwy. 2 to Leavenworth and back west over Hwy 2 or I-90, the roads are all open. The confusion is that from Twisp Hwy 20 turns east to Okanogan and Omak over the loop Loup Pass, this section of Hwy 20 is closed due to road repairs. You can still drive around allowing yourself an extra 30 minutes to get to Okanogan by following the Methow Valley on 153 to Pateros at Hwy. 97 then Brewster and then north to Okanogan.
