LOCATION: Columbia Falls, Montana
CAMPGROUND: Mountain View RV Park
WEATHER: Another hot one – High 93
I spent the morning researching other places where we might stay next week, rather than continue to stay a second week at this RV park. We are fine here, but we would prefer to be out in nature and/or at a cheaper location. I snagged one night at a state park, 2 nights at a small dry-camping campground in the mountains, and two Harvest Host sites – a golf course and a ranch. Two other Harvest Host locations, a brewery and a cherry farm, were already full. This is the first time that this has happened to me….shows how many more people are camping this summer.
Since it is still hot, we will postpone hiking until tomorrow. Instead, we went to a brewpub! Why not? This one had good beer and we shared a plate of mushroom gnocchi – mushrooms that tasted like morels and are from a local farmer. Yum!
We are based in Columbia Falls, not far from Glacier Park. Our RV park is halfway between Whitefish (a winter ski resort town) and Columbia Falls. We will make a day trip once or twice over to Glacier National Park, about 20 miles away.
DINNER: I jazzed up some leftovers – hamburger meat with grits and cheese. Side dish was the last of my Minnesota zucchini, sauteed with onions, garlic, and mushrooms. All quite good.
