It's Saturday morning it's snowing, no it's raining...the weather is crappy, hop in the car and drive up the North Fork to Polebridge and get a Huckleberry Bear Claw!
Sounds like a good idea.
So we did.
Drove on the gravel road some 30 + miles
past rivers, mountains and little cabins in the woods
nothing like putting a little gravel in your travel.
Sun was shining when we got up there.
Devoured a few pastries and coffee while chatting with the baker and the owner.
They show us their kitchen
and tell us how much the love the "North Pork" ( a pulled pork sandwich)
we make at the café.
Life is funny, chef tries to get away from the kitchen and ends up in theirs
Much show and tell about the new solar panels they put up-
pretty neat that the whole place is run on the sun (sorry couldn't help myself)
they even sells extra power to saloon, only open seasonally.
" The Merc" is a cozy place with the wood stove burning
all kinds of Montana décor- some more useful than the other.
It's rustic, it's simple - just the way we like it.
Good to get out shoot the breeze with your faraway neighbor
and eat a little huckleberry goodness.
