Photographer's Note

Going to the Sun Road, is an engineering marvel and one of the world's most scenic journeys. Its 51 miles wind across Glacier National Park's center, providing grand vistas of rugged mountain peaks, alpine lakes, waterfalls, and deep forests rising thousands of feet above valley floors. Twelve miles of its total length were carved out of precipitous mountainsides with a minimum of powered equipment and using natural rocks in construction. The road construction began in 1911 and its final grand dedication was in 1933.

In this view is the Sunrift Gorge Bridge a fine place to start from, hiking and strolling to waterfalls and an overlook of Lake Mary (posted yesterday).
