Mt. Jackson is one of the tallest peaks in Glacier
National Park and
is easy to identify due to all the snow and ice that coats it. Unfortunately,
it has always been difficult to see from the Going to the Sun road due
to all the trees blocking the view. Even at the Mt. Jackson Overlook,
one almost needs to stand on the top of your car to sneak a peek of the
mountain through all the trees. Happily, during spring of 2003, numerous
avalanches roared down the mountains flanking the Sun Road on the east
side of Glacier, wiping out many areas of trees and significantly opening
up the view in many areas. The scene here of Mt. Jackson is available
courtesy of one of these avalanches.
