The Going-to-the-Sun Road offers switchback views of the valley and the best way to see them is on the thirties-style Red Jammer buses, so named because drivers used to have to jam the gears to get up the hills.
Red Bus tours will also resume today on the Going-To-The-Sun Road.
Starting in July 2007, visitors will be able to access many popular destinations along the Going-to-the-Sun road by riding on the park's environmentally-friendly, bio-diesel powered shuttle buses.
