This short documentary project, by seasonal employee Trey Burns and NPS VIP Michael Kirby Smith, is a lyrical portrait of the inhabitants at Huckleberry, Loneman, & Swiftcurrent lookouts in Glacier National Park.
Each spring the challenge of plowing the Going-to-the-Sun Road starts all over again. Join the Road Crew on a typical day in early June of 2008 as they work to clear the Rim Rock area, just west of Logan Pass.
Road out of Rock is a black and white silent film that was made during the construction of the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. It shows the monumental task of building a road on the side of a mountain using early machinery and methods. Although the film shows a bear being fed, please to not approach or feed wildlife.
From our archives, this black and white and silent travelogue was produced by the Great Northern Railway circa 1930, before the Going-to-the-Sun Road was completed in Glacier National Park. You may notice some familiar views in this film. Although the film shows early visitors interacting with wildlife, visitors today should not feed or approach wildlife.
