Going to the Sun Highway

We didn't get started today until after 10 today but still wanted to do the Going to the Sun Highway. We packed up the car with a cooler of snacks and drinks knowing it would be a long day. So glad we did... it was the most amazing drive loaded with scenic roads, high mountains, some wildlife and lots of waterfalls. Once again we went over the Continental Divide. It just keeps popping up around all these mountains. The weather started out cool and remained nice througout the day since we were so high in elevation. It really didn't get to warm until late in the afternoon when it reached about 84'. One of my favorite things was Logan Pass where we finally saw Bighorn Sheep and Mountain Goats. After we finally made it across to St. Mary's and we stopped at a little roadside cafe called 2 Sisters where we both had a hamburgers with homemade chips. The food was yummy and our tummys were full so back in the car to do the return trip back home. It took us all day to get over to St. Marys and return back to our campground in Coram which is just south of West Glacier Park. Of course we stopped at most of the waterfalls and scenic view areas. We have come to the conclusion that you can't just visit our National Parks quickly.. You need to spend time exploring them and getting to know them... This area is also someplace I could stay easily for a long time.


Here are a couple of pictures of the Going to the Sun Highway. Barely enough room for 1 car and not even that in some places. It was a hold your breath drive.



These are just 2 of the many waterfalls in the park. The one that Ralph & I are standing at is still covered with snow. It was like being in front of an air conditioner.


The picture on the right are Big Horn Sheep and the one on the left is a Mountain Goat and her baby. Sorry couldn't get the face this time...
