Even with the smoke from the forest fires, the scenery was amazing. This is one of America's top drives for a reason. Many hang on to your seat curves. No traffic jams like I thought there may be, but traffic did slow down at times.

Hard to keep eyes on the road with all the beauty surrounding you. Look for incredible waterfalls along the way. Be careful!!

This part of the gorgeous park is a must. It is not for the faint of heart. Taking a Red Bus allows you to eliminate most of the fear and allows you to enjoy the view. When approaching the mountain, it is almost hard to believe that you will actually be up that high. Man's ability to carve this road... More

I drove this road solo and it wasn't as daunting as I'd been led to believe. It is really nice if you have someone else to drive so you can take in all the amazing sights. I timed my drive so I left from the west side of the park as the sun was setting. Surprisingly, the road was nearly... More

It's hardly unusual for places geared toward the tourist trade to resort to hyperbole in order to attract traffic. The U.S. National Parks Service, however, is blessed with landscapes that require no such finessing around the edges. So when you put rubber to pavement on Glacier National Park's Going to the Sun Road, you will frequently be reminded that the... More

Take time to do this more than once. It will take a full day because of all the stops you are bound to make. Also there are several good hikes off this road and swimming holes to spend time in.

Probably one of the most scenic roads I have ever seen. We landed in Calgary, Canada and drove to Glacier National Park. Entered Going to the Sun Road from the east side all the way to the west exit. What a beautiful drive. Make sure to be patient and pay attention as the drive can be dangerous with sharp narrow... More
