Can I just say "WOW!"? Bucket List worthy? YES! YES! YES! This was absolutely worth every single hour of driving to get there. An incredible, adrenaline-pumping, awe-inspiring (no really, true awe), breathtaking, stop-and-reexamine-your-life, inspiring experience.
Why Should You Go See It?
Why should you not? Oh my gosh, this is something you need to do in this lifetime.
It is beautiful. Honestly, jaw-dropping. It was overcast when I visited, and it was still stunning. The fog made everything very ethereal. People go for the sights. The road was cut into the mountain in the 1930's, and you are very close to nature the entire drive. Walking on the edge of untouched Glacier National Park.
It is easy. Drive to the entrance. Buy a park pass. Drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Stop and take pictures. See mountain goats.
It is exciting. Lots of adrenaline! Narrow mountain road with a tiny ledge between you and plummeting drops. Breathtaking views. Nervous about the drive? You can hop onto one of the red buses and leave the driving to someone else while you sit back and enjoy the views.
