Road to the Sun

 We are back from our trip. We went to Seattle but took the indirect scenic route, which meant a lot of driving.  Here is the border crossing into the USA. This is the cut line that is cleared along the boarder.
On the way down we took a detour to the "Road to the Sun" in Montana. Here is a lake near the start of this scenic road.
The road hand to the edge of a cliff most of the way though the pass. The line you see on the side of the mountain in the picture below is the road.

There are tour in red old fashion buses you can take if you don't want to drive. Here we are stopped at one of the pull off to take a couple of photos. 
 There is always a little bit of snow in the pass. You can see it in the photo below. Most of the snow near the road has melted this late in the summer, but we still found some we could reach.
This really isn't that far from where we live, not sure why we hadn't been before, but think we will go down and drive it again when we are not on our way somewhere. This was a long detour.
