I took a few days away from the blog last week to go on an adventure… to Montana to celebrate Brandon’s brother’s wedding!
It was my first time to Montana and we flew in and out of Missoula, spending a few hours eating and drinking there, but the bulk of the time in Polson and Flathead Lake (about an hour drive north).
In Missoula we checked out a lunchtime festival at Caras Park, ate chocolate at Posh Chocolat (one of Brandon’s favorites), visited the Boone and Crockett Museum, and took a day hike (referred to as a “bear hunt” by me) around the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area. We also dined at Plonk and had a couple of delicious desserts at Sweet Peaks ice creamery. I would HIGHLY recommend their huckleberry ice cream.
We also went to Fort Missoula and had a really fun time exploring.
We also took a day trip to Glacier National Park, which was one of my favorite parts of the trip. We took the “Going-to-the-Sun Road” and hiked the trail at Logan Pass to the Hidden Lake overlook.
Specifically, I enjoyed all of the new friends that we made (not really, but you know…):
Driving to Flathead Lake was also very scenic… and tasty:
And the lake itself:
This post wouldn’t be complete without some photos from the wedding. Congrats to James and Jessica! Three cheers for many more years of happiness!
Hope you’re having a nice holiday week!
