MONTANA to ILLINOIS
Sep. 2-5 2010
PART 2






We left off on Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park in Montana.






We're going. To the sun.




Looking down - way down.




But we're still going. To the sun.




Going-to-the-Sun Road again.




Smile, mountain. You're on Candid Camera.




Looking down again!




Going-to-the-Sun Road near Bird Woman Falls.




A waterfall with Going-to-the-Sun Road going across it. It's unclear whether this is Bird Woman Falls.




Another look down, with a creek and Going-to-the-Sun Road to the left of it.




Not a great view here, but a passable one. Remember, we're going. To the sun.




Excitement builds on Going-to-the-Sun Road!




We're driving right through clouds!




And snow!!! It wasn't even Labor Day yet!




The snow lets up a bit.




Going-to-the-Sun Road relaxes into this narrow path. Also, since construction was going on, we're being led by a pilot car up ahead. So you better hope Going-to-the-Sun Road doesn't make you, um, go.




Yet another mountain view.




Looking over at a section of Going-to-the-Sun Road elevated on a rock wall.




Going-to-the-Sun Mountain! At 9,642 feet above sea level, it pibs in a big way, like so many other things we know and love.




Now we're above the clouds!




Going-to-the-Sun Mountain again!




I had some hope that some of the most distant scenery here might be in Canada, but that's doubtful.




Going-to-the-Sun Mountain is seen on the left.




People - always gettin' in the way!
