GOING-TO-THE-SUN ROAD

While driving on Going-To-The-Sun Road, I constantly found myself pulling over. The construction of this 50-mile long road that traverses the park took about 11 years to complete. It is known as one of the most difficult roads in North America to snowplow in the spring. Here I was taking it for granted to a degree by just soaking in every view that this very windy road had to offer. The view that stopped me this time was the valley that I’d descend into shortly. Only Mt. Oberlin was clearly visible from here, while Clements Mountain and Mt. Cannon were still shrouded in the clouds behind the north end of Glacier Wall on the right. The ever-flowing Bird Woman Falls was more conspicuous than before. Once I reach the bottom of the valley, I would be driving between Mt. Cannon and Glacier Wall till Lake McDonald comes into view.
