Road Trip, Part 2

Sunday was our first full day at the cabin so we set out to explore the area. Since we were on the west side of Glacier, we decided to drive up the North Fork Road, a mostly gravel road just outside the park. Still a lot of snow on the higher elevations as well as evidence of earlier forest fires.

One plant that actually benefits from fire is Beargrass which is often one of the first to reappear in the burn area.

Polebridge Mercantile has been around for 100 years or so. Good place to stop for a beer, or ice cream, or a fresh baked muffin… or all three.

There is even a little restaurant next door with a front porch suitable for knitting should one be so inclined.

One thing about Polebridge, it’s pretty far from anywhere so you might want to think about filling your tank before setting out.

The first night, we had steak cooked on the grill. The second night it was every person for him/her-self to come up with a creative way to use the leftovers. Here are two of the results.

And what better way to end the day than with a glass of wine by the campfire?
