We made our way to to the famous "Going-to-the-Sun Road Highway" which is the only road that crosses the park. It was completed in 1932. The road, a National Historic Landmark and a Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, spans 53 miles (85 km). The two lane road is quite narrow and winding, especially west of Logan Pass.
