Going to the Sun Road - west side

The Going to the Sun road is an engineering feat, and an ongoing maintenance/upkeep project. It is only open July - September because of snow. The only road that goes through Glacier National Park - 52 miles - it is obviously very popular. We have now seen it all, part from the east side and today the west half.
