This whole park is breathtaking, but I love this drive more than most. There were plenty of places to stop and hike, loads of gorgeous sites to see while driving...I wish I had more time to properly explore!

This was our first trip to Glacier National Park and the road had opened just three days earlier. What a terrible, terrible loss it would have been for us if it had still been closed for the winter. The views from the drive are absolutely amazing and the rest of the park pales in comparison. Because it just opened the waterfalls were roaring from snow melt and snow walls were still on the side of the road. Liked it so much we are going to go again tomorrow. It’s going to be tough to gauge when to go because the road opens at different times each year primarily based on the severity of the last winter. It is an absolute must see.

The road fortunately opened up on our second day when we were heading to Many Glacier so we could drive it. It is a beautiful but narrow road with stunning views. To cap it off the top of the road was socked in with fog making it all the more fun. You do not want to go to Glacier Park and not drive this road.

We were here June 18 - 22 (planned a year in advance) thinking this road would be fully open for summer tourists...wrong! So we didn't get to see the entire road after traveling from Florida. Had to drive two hours from West Glacier to East Glacier to see a few things on that side. The middle of Going-to-the-Sun Road was not accessible to tourists...there were many of us not-happy campers. If planning in advance, I would recommend July or August just to be safe. On a side note, while visiting GNP (or any NP)...please take your leftover food/garbage with you...it really made me sad/mad/angry to see people toss their banana peels, etc. on the ground. The animals in any national park cannot associate humans and food...their lives depend on it...by feeding them, leaving your food/trash, or getting too close for photos, "selfies", etc...you are contributing to their death...wild animals that lose their natural fear of people are killed.

This was a wonderful trip. Our first time we went up one side in the Red Bus tour and it was worth every penny. That was our initial education to Glacier Park and we loved it. Then we decided that we had to see everything so we drove the East Glacier Park and stayed over night at the lodge. The next day we drove the entire going to the sun road back to the west side and stopped at every point of interest there is. AWSOME to say the least. This is an absolute must due at least once. The glaciers are melting so the sooner the better to plan your trip.
