Logan Pass – Half Opened

The snowpack this year is disappearing fast which has helped the plowing crews do their insane work to get the iconic Going-to-the-Sun road open. (if you don’t believe me it’s insane, check out their Flickr Page for photos) Because of this, they were able to open up the road from the St. Mary side this[…]

A stretch of the Highline Trail, known as the Northern Highline Trail, that is not seen by many day hikers, is just as impressive as its more popular counterpart.
