WEST GLACIER- Folks who are planning to head up the west side of Glacier National Park's famed Going to the Sun Road had better think again.
Mudslides that hit Tuesday afternoon closed the historic road between Avalanche Creek and Logan Pass and as of 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, the road was still shutdown according to the Park's website.
Heavy rains hit Glacier National Park at about 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, triggering several mudslides, that hit several vehicles on Going to the Sun Road.
Park officials reported two minor injuries as a result of the slides and crews have been working to remove debris so the road can be reopened as soon as possible.
The height of tourism season brings thousands of folks to northwest Montana and drivers can still get to Logan Pass by using the east side of Going to the Sun Road from the St. Mary entrance.
