1936 Tour Bus.....refurbished in 2004. It is acutally a wooden body....we had to close the doors very carefully. The top was canvas and could be opened or closed if needed......stop get out roll out the canvas and fasten then later stop get out and roll up the canvas. It was a spectacular way to view the park.
The driver of our bus was Jody. A college student that works in the park during the summer. The park opened July 13th and will close the middle of September. They had a huge snowfall over the last winter. I would recommend the bus ride as we learned all about the park while being able to view the sites....even had wool blankets on the ride back.
The top of the pass is Sun Mountain. The road through the park is called Going to The Sun Road. We say great horn sheep/mountain goats and even saw a grizzly bear on our tour to the top of the pass. During last winter the snow at the pass was over 100 feet deep. Many more winters like that and there may be some new glaciers in the park.
