    So those of us who are early risers can squeak past the entrances at 5:30am to greet the sunrise..?

    I can actually imagine that happening to some extent on Monday June 28th.

    I suspect that the gate will be "closed" except for the hours 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.

    Wonder what the gate-keepers will think, when Monday morning after the rally... there's BMW's everywhere lining up for entry,
    ALL with the required Day Use Entry Reservation Ticket!

    We could make that happen on April 29th as Seasonal Reservations are first accepted.
    All it would take is communication and the dedicated effort.
    And that could be the follow-up wave of riders that will likely arrive Sunday.

    The rangers at the gates have seen it all I suspect. Think a hundred Harleys waiting to ride the GTTSR. In 2019 we made the egregious error of riding over on the first day the road opened. We happened to be in Kalispel the day before when they announced the snap opening. Absolute chaos, bumper to bumper, stopping to view things without pulling over and started a torrential downpour 20 miles in. I am in no hurry to ride it again. But, being at the St Mary gate when it opens is the best way to avoid the mob for at least most of the way.

    I prefer the Kiowa - East Glacier - Marias Pass route. But then, I'm generally headed to the Isaac Walton Inn in Essex. As soon as the border re opens my lady and I will be heading down there in my new car.

    I'll likely be the first one with a Sip'N Dip Lounge Mermaid riding pillion side-saddle through the Rally Site... there's a bonus for that, right?

    I was not particularly confused about the ticket entry system until I read this clarification.

    I was not particularly confused about the ticket entry system until I read this clarification.
    Yosemite has the ticket entry system in place also, and their initial explanation was likewise confusing. The latest information they’ve released is that motorists just driving through the park and not using any of the day-use or other facilities do not need to do a reservation or pass. However, they will be given a time-stamped receipt and must exit the park within the allowed time frame. I don’t know if Glacier is considering that same adjustment; the logistics of the GTTS highway and normal traffic levels make that seem an unworkable solution. Yosemite implemented the change only after significant negative feedback.

    I don't know what this piece really means. I suspect the turnstiles will be jammed.



    Hope for the best.
