Our last morning in Montana we stopped at the Montana Coffee Shop for breakfast. The wait was long but we’d eaten there before and knew the food was worth it. Our server neglected to give me a number place on our table so they could deliver our food but they had no trouble finding me.
After camping for 5 days my hair was pretty trashed so I upped my accessories and it was the perfect distraction:)
We grabbed additional coffee for the road and hit the road.
When all else fails, a column of black with some colorful accessories always works for me. We decided to head back from Montana by driving south through Idaho. Things all seem larger than life in this part of the country and the drive was spectacular.
Just south of Missoula we headed east on Highway 12 through Clearwater National Forest by way of Lolo Pass. Part way through the very long pass we discovered Elk Lodge which felt like it was in the middle of nowhere. A beautiful nowhere.
It looked like an oasis to this parched driver so we stopped for iced tea and fried pickles…OK, not gourmet pickings but perfect for us.
The log cabins were adorable. I don’t know what I’d do if I came here for more than a day or two but I’d love to figure it out.
The following day we kept heading south, hoping to out run the forest fires so there’d be rooms available at a local motel.
We had no idea of the awesome natural beauty of Idaho’s lakes, rivers, and mountains. The people are friendly and always have a welcome smile. We will be back with our trailer for a longer visit.
Now that Labor Day weekend is here, it feels like summer is officially over but we are squeezing every bit of fun possible into the last few days. Here are some terrific sales I got notice of, that you might want to peek at.
Nordstrom is giving up to 40% off.
Ann Taylor is giving an extra 50% off sale.
Loft is giving an extra 50% 0ff sale and 40% off full priced merchandise.
Enjoy your last weekend of summer and thanks for reading!
