Bare Trees - Glacier National Park, Montana

Going to the Sun Road, Glacier National Park, Montana

A trip to Glacier National Park means a drive on the challenging Going-to-the-Sun Road. The road is the only way to get from the west side of the park to the east side, and it takes a good 2-3 hours to do so. The road has terrific scenes, but the challenge is that there are very few pullouts along it, and the ones that are there have room for only a couple of cars. This means fighting with other tourists for prime spots, difficult during the day. The road is only open 2 months of the year due to heavy snows. This shot from the Heavens Peak area is an indication of the beauty along the road. It shows the valley and a whole lot of trees that are bare of leaves.
