Polebridge, Montana

Jun 27th 2008 — Glacier,Montana,National Parks — 8:31 am

Polebridge is the kind of place I would worry about telling people if anyone actually read this website. A little “town” just ouside the western edge of Glacier National Park. Polebridge is off the grid, the Mercantile there sells some extremely delicious baked good, (think cheesy jalapeno bread and huckleberry bearclaws). Other than that there’s grass, kids, happy tourists, a sand volleyball court, cabins, a bar, and dogs.

My friend Lorrie suggested going there instead of visiting the eastern part again. After stopping for coffee and baked goods we went to the Bowman Lake Campground and did a nice 12-mile loop to Quartz Lake. After being caught in an evening thunderstorm the mosquitoes were basically unbearable. I’d never seen anything like it. The time of year was perfect for the little buggers, warm enough and wet enough.

  2. Of course all your pictures are fabulous, but Hillary at Bowman Lake really takes the cake, or maybe bear claws!

  3. Dude…your mountains have made my mountains here in Maine look…well…paltry. BUT I must say, I bet my Mosquito woahs on the Allagash this last week may have gave your Mosquito woahs a run for their money. Please tell Hillary I said Hello and keep taking those awesome pictures.
