We spent the evening in the quiet town of Whitefish, Montana.

After a nice breakfast we proceeded to the Hungry Horse Dam in Columbia Falls and then off to Lake MacDonald and then back to climbing Going-To-The-Sun Road for more spectacular scenery.

Going-to-the-Sun Road is a scenic mountain road in the Rocky Mountains of the western United States, in Glacier National Park in Montana. It is a driving highlight not to be missed! This road spans about 80kms and crosses the Continental Divide at Logan Pass, the highest point of the park at an elevation of 6,646 feet, traversing almost every type of terrain, from impressive glaciers, beautiful valleys, cedar forests, cascading waterfalls, rivers and creeks, towering mountains to windswept alpine tundra atop the pass, and ocassional wildlife sightings.

This is an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains. The road is winding and in many places bordered on one side by cliffs and on the other side by a drop of hundreds of feet, sometimes unprotected by guardrails. This engineering marvel spans through the park's wild interior, winding around mountainsides and treating visitors to some of the best sights in northwest Montana. Breathtaking and scary at times! This two lane road is quite narrow at times and winding, especially west of Logan Pass
