GOING-TO-THE-SUN ROAD, PART 6


Anyone who has traveled a significant stretch of the Going-to-the-Sun Road is struck by the sheer marvel of engineering that made it possible. The annual spring plowing of this alpine tightrope is as remarkable a confrontation with natural elements as you’ll find anywhere.

Extra Insight

The opening credits of the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film, The Shining, begin with Jack Torrance driving his Volkswagen up the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Other Going-to-the-Sun Road film appearances include a portion of the running across America scenes from Forrest Gump.
