Last one!


We went back to Glacier National Park again today. This time we explored the Camas Road area of the park with awesome creeks, streams, waterfalls and more. Afterwards, we went on to explore the tiny town of Polebridge, Montana. This is one of the coolest places we have visited in Montana. It is about 20 miles from the Canadian border. They have no electricity, the locals use generators, solar panels, kerosene and propane lights. We met the owner of the Mercantile, he said he is also the Mayor and the Sheriff of the town. :-)

We had lunch and then had to use the OUTHOUSE out back for the restroom. The Polebridge Mercantile has some unique gift items, antiques and wonderful sandwiches. They bake the meat, cheese etc. inside the sandwich sized loaf of their homemade bread, right out of the oven. I had one with meatballs and cheese and Jerry had barbecue, both were incredible. The bakery is filled with a multitude of goodies including huckleberry bear claws, fresh baked breads and more delicious treats.

The drive to Polebridge was almost as exciting as the town. Half of the roads are dirt or gravel with lots of potholes, but the scenery and the wildlife make it worth every bump. We saw a herd of elk, tons of deer, birds and much more. We will go back again just to see the wildlife and the awesome scenery. This is a "must see" stop if you are in the area.
