VR Tour

Montana (Glacier National Park)

Montana (Glacier National Park)

My first trip to Montana I had barely started panoramics. Later I returned to the northern tip for a trip through Glacier National Park and the deservedly famous Going To the Sun Road. We came in from Washington and Idaho.

This road is indeed one of the world's most spectacular. At the best spots, however, it was difficult to stop so I didn't get a pano from the best western spot this trip.

McDonald lake in Glacier NP

McDonald lake fills the western valley. It's popular for boating and fabulous views of Logan pass, though this day has some haze.

Going to the Sun Road

Halfway up the Going-to-the-Sun Road, we stopped after a construction zone. Here's a wide look onto the valley from the north.

Top of the Beartooth Highway

To finish this page, here's a very early panorama from 1998 taken with my earliest .75MP digital camera. It's of the top of Beartooth pass, one of the highest passes in the USA, which comes out of Yellowstone and into Montana. The top is above the treeline, but the eastern descent is actually the most spectacular.
