Triple Arches in Glacier National Park

Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park really is remarkable as it cuts through the continental divide amidst some outstanding mountain scenery.  One of the more impressive structures along this heavily-traveled road is the Triple Arches bridge that is located near Logan Pass.  This stone/concrete bridge spans about 65 feet and was built in 1927 to get the road across some fairly sizable gaps in the mountainside.  It blends in to the surrounding rock pretty well, so you might not even notice the three archways if you’re not paying close attention…or, if you are only looking out at the fantastic views away from the road…
