This picture Monday from the Goat Haunt webcam shows snow is returning to the high mountain country at Glacier National Park. There's still time for a late-season trip to the park if you do it soon!
Glacierís Logan Pass closed due to snow
Will reopen as soon as weather improves
September 12, 2005

The Logan Pass section of the Going-to-the-Sun (Sun) Road remains temporarily closed due to weather conditions, according to a Park news release on Monday, September 12. The closure is from Avalanche to Jackson Glacier Overlook. Visitors can still travel 15.5 miles from the west entrance and 13.5 miles from the east entrance. The upper section of the road is closed due to snow which is up to 20 inches in places.

Logan Pass reported 10-12 inches, Granite Park Chalet had 24 inches, and Sperry Chalet had nearly 20 inches. Closures for the Logan Pass section are traditionally from the Loop. The closure from Avalanche is necessary due to numerous downed trees blocking the road. More than 100 trees fell between Avalanche and the Loop due to the heavy, wet snow.

National Park Service road crews are working to clear the road. It is expected that access to Logan Pass Visitor Center will be available first from the east side. Weather-permitting, the east side will likely open on Tuesday, September 13. Access to Logan Pass from the west side will likely take additional time due to the need to remove downed trees. Weather and road conditions permitting, park managers hope to open the west side on Wednesday, September 14.
