I never tire of photographs of the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. This year, the road opened incredibly early (it was a low snow year, so the road was clear of snow earlier than usual) and opened on June 19, 2015! Here are some photos of the Going-to-the-Sun Road so far this year (2015):
