Perched along the Continental Divide in Montana’s Glacier National Park lies the narrow and winding Logan Pass.
Every year during the months of May and June (*weather depending), road crews and avalanche mitigation experts brave the elements and shoulderless road to clear the way for the onslaught of tourists looking forward to their summer vacations in GNP.
“Our avalanche Technicians are providing us shots unlike anything we have had in the past.” – Glacier National Park
This year the clearing effort is particularly remarkable after a series of late season storms slammed into the mountains of northern Montana, leaving feet of snow on the pass and a daunting challenge for road crews. Today, NPS officials released a series of photos that illustrate just how hard of a job clearing Logan Pass truly is.
