CAMPGROUND: Jocko Hollow RV Park. Very small with about 15 sites. Some sites (like ours) right on the Jocko River. Ours is a gravel, level site with picnic table and firepit. Electricity only. Run by a feisty 80-year-old lady who likes to chat. She has fresh flowers growing around the park and on the picnic tables. $30/night. 4 stars
LOCATION: 15 miles north of Missoula, Montana – in west central part of state
WEATHER: Very nice. Chilly in the AM. Sunny. High 73
It was a beautiful morning at the Harvest Host winery. It is called Trapper Peak Winery, named after these mountains glistening in the morning sun.
A man in a cowboy hat walked down our lane and waved to us as we were packing up. Maybe neighbor Kevin Costner????
We swapped out our Idaho beer guide for its Montana cousin….
We were driving through Missoula around noon, so selected one of 10 breweries in town for lunch.
As its name implies, the brewery makes German-style beers and serves German food. We sat out on the deck and enjoyed a nice lunch.
Missoula itself has only a KOA and Jellystone RV park, neither of which we like (expensive, full of children, crowded, no firepits), so we are staying 15 miles out of town. It is a cute little place.
Our site backs onto another bubbling river. George tried his luck again with fly fishing and caught someting……a tree!
DINNER: Not too exciting. I needed to use up a frozen leftover salmon burger. To add volume, I added sauteed onions, artichoke hearts, and mushrooms. It needed some type of oomph, but was ok. Sides were salad and rice.
