MONTANA to ILLINOIS
Sep. 2-5 2010
We left off on Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park in Montana.
We're going. To the sun.
Looking down - way down.
But we're still going. To the sun.
Going-to-the-Sun Road again.
Smile, mountain. You're on Candid Camera.
Looking down again!
Going-to-the-Sun Road near Bird Woman Falls.
A waterfall with Going-to-the-Sun Road going across it. It's unclear whether this is Bird Woman Falls.
Another look down, with a creek and Going-to-the-Sun Road to the left of it.
Not a great view here, but a passable one. Remember, we're going. To the sun.
Excitement builds on Going-to-the-Sun Road!
We're driving right through clouds!
And snow!!! It wasn't even Labor Day yet!
The snow lets up a bit.
Going-to-the-Sun Road relaxes into this narrow path. Also, since construction was going on, we're being led by a pilot car up ahead. So you better hope Going-to-the-Sun Road doesn't make you, um, go.
Yet another mountain view.
Looking over at a section of Going-to-the-Sun Road elevated on a rock wall.
Going-to-the-Sun Mountain! At 9,642 feet above sea level, it pibs in a big way, like so many other things we know and love.
Now we're above the clouds!
Going-to-the-Sun Mountain again!
I had some hope that some of the most distant scenery here might be in Canada, but that's doubtful.
Going-to-the-Sun Mountain is seen on the left.
People - always gettin' in the way!
