Going-to-the-Sun Road

It’s a wrap!

First, thanks to all who have been visiting my Experience Glacier National Park blog. You know that I have a passion for this special place.

I’m excited to announce that I have just released a book centered around one of the most magnificent roads in the country: the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

In this digital Multi-Touch book, I’ve taken a different approach than others. Swipe or click through numerous photo galleries, pan and zoom on maps, use scrolling sidebars for the rest of the story, click on internet links to access additional historical as well as current information explicitly tailored for the Going-to-the-Sun Road corridor. In addition to the Table of Contents, thumbnails of the book pages can be placed near the bottom of the screen. Both of these tools help the reader find information, like the following, quickly:

  • options for getting around inside the park
  • important wildlife information
  • points of interest with associated human history, geology and natural history; mileages from both the west and east entrances are provided
  • the story behind the multicolored rocks and rugged topography
  • hiking opportunities 
  • water recreation
  • boat tours
  • biking 
  • horseback riding
  • camping 
  • lodging and restaurants

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, you can check it out on Apple Books. Just click on the link below the cover picture.

If you know others who would find this book useful, please share the information with them.

I’m switching it up for this post. Rather than describing a hike, I’ve posted a few of my favorite photographs. Hope that you enjoy them.
