Going To The Sun Road to Logan Pass
Last Thursday I had to go into Kalispel to stock up before my trip to Oregon this Friday…a week later. I decided to drive back to East Glacier through the park on the famous Going To The Sun Road over Logan Pass. The road was constructed in 1932.
I had been across this road ten years ago when Pati and I took an RV trip up here and again a few months or so back when I went across to the west and on up toward Canada to the tiny town of Polebridge. They are closing the road for the season in a few days so I did the drive, which is not for the faint-hearted. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I just wish I could have seen a Grizzly!
|There is about a thousand foot drop a few feet from the road barrier.|
|Notice the waterfall at about eight o'clock.|
|You can see the road I came over along the mountain side.|
|That's the road again.|
|Goose Island when I was almost through the park....very pretty.|
|Self explanatory but amazing. This is the only place in the US that three rivers are fed by the snowmelt and rain.|
|Triple Divide Peak as I was looking at it.|
|After leaving Glacier, I was approaching the town of Browning on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation and that is the Harvest Moon rising in the East with the sunset reflected above it.|
Thanks Bob, Diane, Marty, Tony and, especially Woody, for making me feel so welcome. I wish you all Happy Trails and good health.
