Heading west on Highway 2 about 35 miles out of Everett you will come to little canyon, and it is there one will get this look at Mt. Index, if the atmosphere allows it. You can prepare for your trip by visiting Google Earth and its highway picture #45522 beside Highway #2. You will find nearby one of the site’s blue squares – this one floating in the river – that indicates there is a picture for you to see. If you tap it up will pop a snapshot titled “Mt. INdex early Spring.” It is from nearliy the same prospect as Syke’s view and shows the same big rock in the Skykomish River.
