This is a big day of the ride. There is a Glacier Park requirement that bikes must be off the Going to The Sun northbound lane by 11 am. In anticipation, we got up very early and were on the road by around 5:30 am. We wanted to allow for any mechanical problems and be on the road way before the traffic got heavy.
The scenery is breathtaking. The climb from Sprague was one of the best ever! My legs felt great today and it was easier than I thought.
Rick coming over the top. We fired up the Jet Boil and made coffee. We ate the rest of a salami stick and hunk of cheddar cheese we had at the top while waiting for Jerry.
Saint Mary Lake
After Jerry caught up, we started the decent down the other side. The Saint Mary Lake on the north side is so beautiful you just have to see it.
