Photographer's Note

Only one road traverses Glacier National Park, and what a road it is! This is one of the most spectacular, awe-inspiring 50 miles in the country. Although it is named for the mountain, it is aptly called the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Whether you are climbing from the east or west side, your trip to Logan Pass certainly seems like you are going directly to the sun. (See Travel Notes for vehicle restrictions.)

You will probably want to drive this road several times, stopping to hike on some trails and capturing the scenery at different times of day. If you have little time, the best time to drive the road is a few hours before sunset. This is when you are more likely to see wildlife and there are fewer cars on this very popular route. If you have more time, plan both an early morning and a late afternoon trip. If you can plan a trip here in September, the road still may be open and you will find fewer people, fall color and bears foraging for snowberries.
