NATIONAL PARKS —  While road crews are still churning through 20-foot deep snow drifts toward Logan Pass in the upper sections of Glacier National Park's Going to the Sun Road, bicyclists are having a great time riding the motor-vehicle-free lower reaches of the fabled park road.

Park officials say they still can't predict when the road will be opened over Logan Pass for vehicles.

Meantime, cyclists rule!
