Big Sky Montana

We rode out of Billings on July 7th - lots of pasture land getting to East Glacier. Stayed in a VERY cute motel, Mountain Pine. Little cabin like rooms in a mountain setting. We ate dinner and breakfast at the Whistle Stop Restaurant.

Would recommend both places with a return visit.

We left East Glacier for the Road to the Sun around 9 a.m. yesterday. Traffic wasn't too bad, the weather was great and the road was open all the way. Kudos the the park staff that keep that road in very good condition.

On leaving Glacier National Park we headed toward Polson, Montana. Stopped in Kalispell to have lunch at Famous Dave's BBQ - which was not as good as the food at the same restaurant chain in Billings.

We rode south on the West side of Flathead Lake to Polson and stayed at the Flathead Inn. An okay place, just no pool!

It is cherry season in Polson - so far haven't found at cherries cheap enough to buy!

Today we are headed to Walla Walla, Washington. Lynn & Jana will leave the group is Lewiston, Idaho and the rest of us will head home via Highway 101.
