Going To The Sun Road from St Mary’s, MT

 

So, today we decided to finish the complete Going To The Sun Road.  We entered at the St Marys, MT entrance.   Even though we were heading toward the rain it turned out to be a great day with the low clouds over the mountains!01-DSC_0001 02-DSC_0004 02-DSC_0008 03-DSC_0009 03-DSC_0011
