Going to the Sun road


Yesterday we spent much of the day driving the Going to the Sun road in Glacier National Park. Fortunately we got a very early start and missed part of the hoards of people that we encountered later in the day. It was an amazing experience. Every curve we rounded was a new delight. And there were plenty of curves. Snow covered mountains, rivers in the valley so deep, waterfalls and cascades galore. After two or three previous attempts we were finally able to make the drive over the mountain and through Logan’s pass. One of the best experiences we have ever head. The only way it could’ve been better is if we had driven our Roadtrek. Almost as great as our trips to Alaska.

I am glad that we went in a car as there are many places where the road is to narrow for our Roadtrek 210 Popular.

Below are some of the many images captured during our trip. My apologies for not being able to caption al of them. Quite often you are able to click on the photo and it will make it larger and easier to view in more detail.

The white at the bottom of the picture is snow. They had a record amount this year.

Below is the visitor center at Logans pass, the highest altitude on the Going to the Sun road. The altitude at Logans pass 6,646 feet.

We hope you enjoy these few images of our trip, one of our more memorable drives.

    Heartbreaking to see how little snow and ice left in Glacier Park. With the climate change, which of course we don’t have, there will be no glaciers remaining in another 10 years. Hope that the trail from Logan Pass (can’t remember the name) up to the view point to see Grinell Glacier was open and you had a chance to make the walk. Well worth the short effort.

    I have driven the Going to the Sun Highway in our Roadtrek 210 Popular several times with no problems at all so next time, don’t hesitate….it’s a lot of fun!
