I still had to get Ambika to the airport. We finished the always beautiful drive on Going to the Sun Road with stops at Siyeh Bend, Lunch Creek, below Logan Pass, and two other stops on the west side. And somehow I managed to shoot so much I have a two-part video:
[ youtube video ] Siyeh Bend heading west including creeks, waterfalls and mountains
[ youtube video ] from just below Logan Pass including awesome Reynolds Falls and more waterfalls and the Weeping Wall, more mountains
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. The Sun Road, as it is sometimes abbreviated in National Park Service documents, is the only road that traverses the park, crossing the Continental Divide through Logan Pass at an elevation of 6,646 feet, which is the highest point on the road. Construction began in 1921 and was completed in 1932 with formal dedication in the following summer on July 15, 1933. Prior to the construction of the road, visitors would need to spend several days traveling through the central part of the park, an area which can now be traversed within a few hours, excluding any stops for sightseeing or construction.
We stopped at two huckleberry stores in Hungry Horse. I really like the second one now (see photo in photoset) better than Huckleberry Patch. After having no luck finding a place to eat before Ambika flew out, I ended up just dropping her at the airport where she was able to get some supper. I proceeded to my cousin's house in Whitefish where I enjoyed leftovers out on the patio.

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
