August 2015 – I never could decide which way I liked headed on Going to the Sun Road best. Here are pics from the west side (Apgar Village to The Loop) – about 22 miles. There is just way too much beauty on this road to limit pictures to one page, so I broke them down by West Side – East Side. Here’s a map for locations.
Me at Lake McDonald Lodge
This picture was taken by a friend of mine who was visiting Glacier at the same time. I think she got a kick out of me freezing and took her sweet time getting this picture. Thanks, Gail!
Here’s another good reason not to miss stopping at all pull-offs you see alongside the road. There is a bridge here, also, with great views of these small, but gorgeous falls.
Red Rocks Overlook
Appropriately named, I really enjoyed this little trail and overlook reward.
From viewpoints along the road, opportunities abound to look back on where you’ve been or where you’re headed. Either way, the road is amazing!
No matter what time of day or where you are on this road, the views just can’t be beat.
There were times I held my breath when seeing how far I’d fall if I took my eye off the road, but it was well worth it.
Many times I wound up driving part of the way home in the dark because I just couldn’t make myself stop stopping at each viewpoint.
This is another Shuttle stop by the Loop. Not a bad view to sit and wait for a ride.
