There are two tunnels along the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National
Park, one on the west side of the Continental Divide and another on the
east side. The tunnel on the west side of the park seems less like a
tunnel since it has openings on the side, providing nice views from within
the tunnel. The east side tunnel, by contrast, is a bona-fide tunnel,
about 1/8 of a mile long. Considering the rocky terrain the Going to
the Sun Road, it is somewhat surprising that only two short tunnels exist
on the road - especially on the west side of the continental divide.
