79 miles - Total: 2597 miles
I will not bore you with the usual self-indulging account of the day's ride. So I will let the pictures do the talking. I hope these photos do some justice to the scenery because words which try to capture the feelings of riding in the GNP don't and never will!
At 6:45 am I enter the Park, with 41F, brrrrr
The sun is not out yet
Lower Saint Mary Lake
The first sunshine of the day hitting Otokomi Mt
No traffic on Going-to-the-Sun Road this early in the morning
The road bends around the Lake
The Lake from the road beginning to climb
Up, up, up
View from the ascending road
It gets steep as the road twists on the flank of the mountain
Tunnel 2 miles before the Pass
View from the Pass, almost
On the Pass, Continental Divide, Vancouver seems closer now...
After the Pass this is what I was dreading...12 miles of hair-raising descent!
View from the top
From the Pass
The cliff-hanging road
View from the descent
The water is crystal clear
