The Big Drift on the Going to the Sun Road. The "Big Drift" forms
each winter just to the east of Logan Pass. High winds blow the snow
over the peaks, where the snow begins to pile up. During the winter of
2003-2003, the Big Drift was exceptionally high - about 90 feet! Specialized
snow equipment, along frequently with blasting, is needed to remove the
snow. The big drift is frequently the last place on the Sun Road in Glacier
National Park that gets plowed. By the time this picture was taken (2
days after the road opened for traffic in 2003), much of the snow had
melted on the Big Drift.
