Glacier Park has turned the snowplows loose, starting with Camas Road . . .
Spring in Glacier National Park means firing up snow plows in the annual effort to clear park roads of snow.
Park plow crews hit the road Tuesday, starting with Camas Road on the west side of the park. When that’s completed, they will start work on Going-to-the-Sun Road, park spokeswoman Denise Germann said.
On the east side, plow crews began work on the Chief Mountain Road. They will move on to the St. Mary, Many Glacier and Two Medicine areas next before heading up Sun Road.
