I’m leaving on a road trip soon, and the planned route takes us along the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park, Montana. Apparently, at around 6,600 feet, you really cannot count on the season to get through: as of July 8, 2011, part of the road is closed for ploughing! It seems crews are working currently at the Logan Pass visitor centre. Pictures of recent work can be seen at the Glacier National Park Flickr page, but here’s a small taste from the last couple days….
Update: I have seen in the past hour or so that the entire GTTSR is to open on July 13, 2011. This is the second latest opening since the road was dedicated. The latest was the dedication day way back in 1933 or so.
