Model T Rally: Going-to-the-Sun Rd – West Glacier, Montana

September 7th, 2010 by Austin

Pictured here, a crowning achievement of the human race pitted against the sheer magnitude of planet earth. Yes, the Model T is a monumentally significant innovation that not only put middle America on wheels but also revolutionized the manufacturing and marketing of mass market products for the century to follow. While other automakers were hand-building in the dozens per month volume range, Ford was cranking out a model T every 93 minutes. Not bad for a farm boy from Detroit. But in the grand scheme of it all, the car and newfound sense of industry that it catalyzed, are mere blips in earth’s infinitely chaptered log book. The mountains of Glacier National Park, for instance, were formed 170 million years by huge glaciers of the last ice age. The bedding structures of these rock formations are believed to be the remains of the earliest identified animal life on Earth. To put it bluntly, we are merely visiting here.
