  •  Is the Going-to-the-Sun Road open yet? (2+ / 0-)

    If not, is there any kind of estimate? How much snow did Glacier receive this winter? When we were there over the 4th of July in 2011, the Road still wasn't open because of the massive snows received that year.  I believe it finally opened around the middle of July, which was its latest opening since the Road was built.

    Now we did fly out again the following month with our son to see Glacier again, and in particular to travel that amazing road and those incredible views. Glacier is just a wonderful park. Too bad we can't make it this year--we've got a cruise to Alaska planned which sort of wipes out this year's travel budget. But we are looking forward to Alaska because everyone who's been says Alaska is also spectacularly beautiful, and we've never been to Alaska, so that will be a first.

    But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, ... there are few die well that die in a battle; ... Now, if these men do not die well, it will be a black matter for the king that led them to it; — Shakespeare, ‘Henry V’
