Glacier National Park's 50 mile long "Going to the Sun Road" is one of Earth's most spectacular drives, winding through the Rocky Mountains often along cliff sides. It received its name from Blackfeet native American legend about a sun deity who came from the sun to teach them how to hunt, and when he left they named a mountain Going to the Sun.

For last two weeks I saw e few national parks in the US too.
Excellent picturesque composition, but I think here is this red car is a main hero. And the park is just a background. For more realistic show the passengers could be dressed up similar clothes of 1940th, for example.
Yep, I will show you all my photos from AZ.
Best wishes from Phoenix!

Is this an old Rolls Royce? Stretch limos seems to be the transport of the day, there are a few of them in Las Vegas. Nicely captured with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Sorry I couldn't resist, that car reminds me of Anthill Mob in the Bulletproof Bomb in the Wacky Racers. Remember that cartoon? Loved it :)
Anyway, you captured a great shot, so vibrant and dynamic. A drive in that old mobile in that beautiful wilderness would surely be a once in a lifetime experience. Lucky you.
Just back from my 5 week Invasion of Europe. I've got to wait for my liver to dry out before posting any photos, but will chat soon.

Hi Ray, Nice view of this red shuttle bus. The road "going to the sun" is really spectacular and you were here lucky with the weather. Wonderful composition.I know Glaciers National Park and its Canadian part Waterton Lakes as well. But in cloudy and a bit rainy day I couldn't make such nice photos.
