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.
