Glacier National Park, Going to the Sun Road

Today we got up and headed for the Going to the Sun Road, the only road that travels through the heart of the park. An historic civil engineering landmark spanning 53 miles, the road was completed in 1932.

The road goes over the Continental Divide at Logan Pass, which can get up to 80 feet in annual snowfall. The road can take up to ten weeks to clear each spring.

Enjoy this video of our days at the park.
