Because of our many stops along the way, we did not arrive to the park until 5 p.m.
We decided that we didn’t have a lot of time for hiking.
Thus we opted to drive the “Going-to-the-Sun Road”. It is noted to be one of the world’s most spectacular highways. The 50 mile long road follows the shores of the park’s two largest lakes and hugs the cliffs below the Continental Divide as it traverses Logan Pass. Later we found out that it had only been opened for two weeks.
So that hubby could get the most of the scenic view I opted to take the wheel.
The road was very high up, winding, and narrow. Oh, and parts of it were under construction. Funny thing is, I’m more afraid when someone else is driving.
That’s probably because I can look down and realize how high we really are. When driving I have to keep my eyes on the road.
Even so, I managed to see how gorgeous it was.
Wall of Water – this doesn’t do it justice. It was really long. In some parts the water came down very fast.
This next pic gives you a slight glance of the road.
Logan’s Pass. Here we sighted a group of mountain goats. Hubby tried to get a pic, but realized that the camera was turned off.
View this video so you can get a feel of how it was driving this highway.
Sure hope you don’t get car sick!
Guess what? My give away project is almost complete.
