We caught up with our WIN friends in Kalispell, MT, staying at the fairgrounds. Once day we drove up to Lone Pine State Park which has an excellent view of the town and surrounding mountains.
We could even see ourselves parked in the fairgrounds. It was a bit pricey at $12.50 a night, although the early birds got electric. You can't see our rig but it's buried in the tress behind the red building on the right. Needless to say, it was hot.
One day, Ron and I took a drive around Flathead Lake, 27 miles long and 15 miles wide. This is a big area for growing sweet cherries and we stopped at one of the hundreds of roadside stands and bought some.
When we left Kalispell, we headed south to I 90 by way of some very pretty back roads.
Another shot out the windshield. Ron is always washing it, but I think bugs are attracted to a clean windshield.
We stopped overnight at the 50,000 Silver Dollar Bar at exit 16 off I 90. When we were there years ago, it was 10,000, but I guess the name will change again, because . .
It started with silver dollars inset into the bar.
But now they're just everywhere. Behind the bar,
And hanging from the ceiling.
Each one mounted with the 'owner's' name.
This is pretty interesting to read.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that they have free RV parking among the trees behind the bar. They even offer free electric, but I was afraid to hook up since I read online that they might be wired wrong. However Ron checked several outlets and said they were fine. (We still didn't plug in.)
