    Yah, lots of local shots in there! If you look at the Going To The Sun Road right about the end, it shows the switchback and the valley... I got hired to haul the Park Service's D8 over that road one night. They went to the top of the pass and blocked traffic at the Logan Pass visitor center, and I headed up from the bottom. I told them that once I started, I wouldn't be able to stop and get going again, so I'd have to back all the way to the bottom if they had anyone coming down. When I went through the tunnel, I had about 9" on each side and less than 6" on top of the cat to fit it through... had a little sweat running before I got through there!
    Awesome video! We're going to try to break loose for a couple days this summer and head to Redlodge, MT. My Great Grandad pioneered that town and the Beartooth hiway, so I guess there's a museum that has alot of his stuff in it, and I'd like to see it.

    Sounds like what my dad described one winter when he hauled hay out west river.

    D8 pushed open a road and he had inches on either side of him as well.

    Once he got to the place though, he said it was the prettiest place he had been to.
