May 30, 2011: At the summit of Rogers Pass, the Memory Garden and Summit Monument tell the story of the triumphs and tragedies behind Canada first trans-continental railway and highway.


I visited Rogers Pass in the end of May 2011. There was lots of snow that year; in some sections of Glacier National Park, you could see the glacier sliding down the hill and lying next to the highway!!!

I didn’t stay too long in Rogers Pass. That year Rogers Pass Discovery Centre was under renovation, and the Visitor Information Centre was temporarily relocated to Glacier Park Lodge. There are many hiking trails and tourist attractions around Rogers Pass (see below more info). Take a break and have a lunch or picnic at the Memorial Arch Garden while appreciating the rugged beauty of mountain peaks and glaciers in this national park.

  1. Fun pictures! I visited Glacier National Park this past August and there was still snow on some trails…last year was the latest GNP opened the Going to the Sun Road because of record snows the prior winter!

    • The Glacier National Park I went to is the one in Canada. I’ve never been to the American one. Well, maybe one day I will. :D

      American GNP is also very beautiful, but I heard the glacier is receding fast. :( Perhaps I need to act fast?!
