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.
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.
