    We were all exhausted from our 200 mile drive yesterday and slept in a little this morning.  We left for Glacier National Park around 9:00, after a brief stop at the Hospitality Suite.  We were lucky enough to have sunshine for most of the day, and were granted a beautiful view of The Going-to-the-Sun Road.  This road was built literally on the edges of vertical rock walls, with only one major switchback, and an unusual desire for the time to protect the environment.

Crews are busily rebuilding rock walls and
guardrails in a 6-year project to improve road
conditions and safety.

    We were rewarded with spectacular views, lit by the sun instead of shrouded in mist.  Logan's Pass had cloud cover but nothing like yesterday when we could barely see beyond the parking lot.  Going down was a little more intimidating for me than the drive up but gave us a different perspective on the view.  And we ate our lunch overlooking the valley more than 3,000 feet below and looking up at the mountains on the other side of the road.  If you have never been to Glacier, put it on your bucket list.  It is definitely worth the trip!  But bring a car or plan to ride in one of red "Jammer" buses; no motorhomes are allowed on the Going-to-the-Sun Road.
