Plowing Going to the Sun Highway Has Begun!

You know that spring is here when we start getting updates on the progress of plowing Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park!

Being a Montana native, I still am amazed how they are able to maintain this highway so that we all can look in awe at the beautiful country we live/travel in!

 

The question asked all the time is “when do you think Going to the Sun is going to be open”? That is the million dollar question, because it is always so much fun to be one of the first to go over the highway after a long winter slumber, but the answer is not so easy. All I can say is “they are working as fast as they can, but Mother nature always has her own plan”.

For those seeking the answer to this million dollar question, the best thing to do is to “like” Glacier National Park on Facebook and watch the progress, it will make the trip so much more impressive when you know how hard it is to clear and repair it every Spring.
