Leaving our campsite in the Apgar Campground in Montana’s Glacier National Park, we hiked less than a mile to the Transportation Center. After a short wait, we caught one of the big busses which took us up to the Avalanche area. Here we transferred to a small bus for the ride up the Going-to-the-Sun Road and to the top of the world. Logan Pass at an elevation of 6,640 feet (2,026 meters) is the highest point on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. According to the Park Service:
Waves of yellow glacier lilies pushing up through the snow are quickly replaced by a variety of alpine plants adapted to this harsh, but spectacularly beautiful, habitat.Shown below are photographs of plants taken from the top of the world.
