Riding to the Sun

Unspoiled alpine areas like National Parks get huge amounts of snow. Elite snow removal crews started work in early June on Glacier National Park's Going-to-the-Sun road. In some places, the snow is 80 feet high!

Normally, only daredevils with a deathwish cycle the road. It's barely big enough for two cars to squeeze by. But each year, there's a sweet spot where the snow is clear and cars aren't allowed.

If you time it right, you can have the ride of a lifetime. Just check your brakes first. Read it - 7 minutes
