Going To The Sun Road
Here at Glacier National Park, the infamous Going To The Sun Road remains closed.
Crews have recently finished plowing huge amounts of winter snow, but many road surface and guardrail repairs remain to be completed before opening the pass to automobile traffic.
During this road closure period, park visitors are allowed access to bike or walk the famous alpine highway. Yesterday afternoon Kelly and I laced our sneakers, grabbed the binoculars, and set off for a walk to Logan Pass in hopes of spotting Big Horn Sheep or Mountain Goats high on a ridge. If we were lucky, maybe we would see a few bears in one of many valley meadows far below.
We didn’t see any animal activity off in the distance, but you’ll understand our surprise to round a bend and effectively walk into a pack of sheep quietly grazing at the side of the road.
If you have never been to Glacier, it must be added to your list. This place is simply magnificent.
