The Going To The Sun road is a drive you don't want to miss if you visit Glacier. It is only open for a few months of the year, while it is free of snow. Even then the terrain is subject to avalanch, so it can close almost any time without warning juring the spring. For some this is a white knuckle ride with shear drops to the side and little protection should you run off the road. The road runs from the west entrance, past Macdonald Lake, ascends to Logan Pass, then decends past St Mary Lake, to the east entrance. Along the way can be seen many animals including Big Horn Sheep and Grizzly Bears.

Oh my, YES!! This is how it's supposed to be done. Beautiful POV with that curving road coming out of the corner. Mountains making a great vee with incredible light and shadows to give it excellent depth topped by a wonderfully cloudy sky. Magnificent shot!!
