Getting around Glacier

There’s a unique way to see Glacier National Park. We didn’t do it (we had better with our own park ranger), but fans of classic vehicles will be interested in the Red Jammer Tours. These vehicles hold 17 people, have a canvas top which can be opened in good weather (a big convertible), and were especially made for this duty. They were built in the late 1930’s by the White Motor Company, the same one that makes trucks. About a decade ago, they were reconditioned by Ford and got motors that run on propane and automatic transmissions. The “Jammer” name came from the original operators furiously operating their stick shifts. The front of a Jammer now carries the White and Ford marque.

SAM_0782One of these came around a curve going in the opposite direction and was over the center of the road (our side). You’ll see why this is not good on the “Going to the Sun” road. All the ranger (who was driving) had to say was “new driver” very calmly.
