Bigfork Valley is a cute little town very near Flathead Lake. The shop we enjoyed the most was one called Native and Creative. The owner represents five different Native American tribes . The handcrafted goods from miniature birch canoes to a wedding dress were of such outstanding quality and beauty you couldn't help but spend a lot of time in the shop. No photos were allowed . Many of the pieces had just come from a two year exposition in the Smithsonian on the Blackfeet tribe.
We drove to Flathead Lake and were surprised to see small whitecaps on the water. It is a big lake with lots of picnic areas tucked in between the trees at the water's edge. They were being well used yesterday.
The area is known for it's cherries - just like Traverse City, MI- and I guess the crop is in. We stopped by a roadside stand and bought a pound for $2.00. Had some after dinner and they are delicious.
With all the driving we have been doing, the inside of the car has gotten very dusty so when we came home I went out with all kinds of cleaners and spruced it up.
Today ( the 31st) we are off to Libby, Mt. for an overnight stop on our way to Sandpoint, Idaho. Don't know if the campground has wifi so I may not post tomorrow. If not, I'll let you know how things are from Sandpoint.
