Hiking Books about Glacier National Park

The Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park sort of acts like a "wind break", allowing snow to pile up on and along the road. It's all this drifting, combined with the avalanches, that dump so much snow on the road - thus making it difficult, dangerous and time consuming to clear it all. This picture was taken about 3/4 of a mile below Logan Pass, on the west side of the park. As you can see, there is no shortage of snow along the road, due to the snow piling up in the sheltered windbreak that the Sun Road provides.
