For the second year in a row, Kailee, myself, and some friends made a late May pilgrimage to ride our bikes on the most recognizable road in Montana. For anyone who hasn’t yet ridden the Going To The Sun Road, do yourself a favor and get up there sometime. It seems there are two more weekends this year before the road opens to motorized use.
Anyway, here are a few photos from the trip:
It was a foggy day, which made for some great photos. Fortunately, it was warm enough that we stayed pretty comfortable, especially on the way up.

The snow level at the top was a little disconcerting. This photo was taken at the top of Logan Pass. Last year at the same time, we couldn’t get to this spot, and it was covered in at least 6 feet of snow.
We got a lot luckier with wildlife sightings this year, catching sight of two herds of bighorn sheep and a black bear with two cubs.
After a great ride, we took a short hike before camping for the night on Lake McDonald. On Sunday morning, we hiked to Arrow Lake (round trip just under 15 miles).
We came home Sunday night. Now back in Missoula for another week of work, then the most competitive Pengelly Double Dip ever on Saturday. It’s gonna hurt a lot. Until next time, happy adventuring!
