After a painful goodbye, we managed to tear ourselves away from two glorious days in Missoula. We were motivated, though, because we (and the rest of our hosted crew) were making our way toward our favorite place in the world, Glacier National Park.
After a scenic, 60-minute drive, we started canoeing the Clearwater Canoe Trail, just north of Seeley Lake. Although we're not huge water guys, we – as kayak owners – love a good paddle. This is one of the best we've ever had. The dreamy, winding path is like no other canoe jaunt we've been on. And the scenery = aces.
After a road-trip lunch next to a lake, we drove a bit further and were all set up for horseback riding with Swan Mountain Outfitters. Don't worry about poorly treated horses; this outfit is the real deal. Trust us, those horses were left wanting for nothing. N o t h i n g.
About 90-minutes after that, we arrived in our town for the night, Whitefish. Ah, Whitefish – only you could manage to make us forget about Missoula. Staying at the ultra-cozy The Lodge at Whitefish Lake was sa-weet. We'll be back.
This was the night of one of our favorite meals of the entire trip. If you are within 200-miles of Whitefish, drop everything and race to Tupelo Grille in downtown Whitefish. The food is Seattle-level good, and the service is attentive and... just outstanding. We were all winking at our server by the end of the evening. Well, at least one of the #MT6Pack was. No kidding.
In all of the excitement, one of us left his wallet behind. It was returned to us (cash intact, mind you) the next day.
What a class act that place is.
What a mistake you would be making if you didn't order the bread pudding.
