Glacier National Park

Yesterday we had the opportunity to ride around Glacier Park. Our original route had us crossing over the continental divide at Logan Pass (here in the park), but because it is so early in the season and snow remains abundant, the Going-to-the-Sun road was closed two miles short of the summit. The real bonus was the fact that the road was only open to bicycles and pedestrians for roughly 12 miles before the closure point. This afforded us a traffic-free experience of what could be considered the most beautiful time of year to experience Glacier. Instead of trying to describe the vistas, I’m going to direct you to our photos page. After taking a day to explore the park, we headed south and crossed the divide at Marias Pass, the lowest passage point through the Rocky Mountains.


  1. Beautiful pic's! I check your blog every day and it's so fun to follow your journey( from my couch!) Take care! Love Marsha

  2. Just so you know, I googled (to find the blog) and this came up on the 'top hits'. I'm not sure exactly what this means, but I bet that you're getting a lot of googles.

    ALSO I have to say good show on the photo posting - enough that you share great things, but not so many that one would have to sift through countless poor/blurry/tasteless images. Because I don't have time for that :-)

    be good, ride on.
