I came into Polson a couple days ago , mainly to check out a Blues festival . I have been camping since last pet sit that ended August 4th, with a Airbnb or hotel now and then. Camped 9 days at Glacier National park . Photos coming in next post. I have not had internet much so just posting this one now about Polson as I am still here. When I came it was smokey so instead of camping I got a room at the Port Polson inn. Nice place and across from Flathead lake. Went to walk thru the town on Thursday night and found a party going on with music, and lots of very friendly people out on the street. I even made some friends who I later met up with at the Flathead Blues Festival.
The wind kicked in and the air cleared up as you can see in photos.
On Friday I went out to take a look at the Kerr Damm, where the Flathead river comes into Flathead lake. Beautiful area. Walked thru the small town and ran into a farmers market which had some lovely veggies and fruit. After staying in Glacier for 9 days, I must say I was craving veggies as the store there did not have much at all !! Oh yes, took many photos of Glacier which I will post in another post soon. I am having some computer problems and hope to get that all worked out when I get to Vancouver , Washington for my next house sit at the end of this month .
Later in the eve I met with my new friends at the Blues festival. Not all blues but a nice show with beautiful setting.
Today it was pretty hot so I went swimming in the lake . Wonderful temperature.
Getting ready now to go to the second day of the Bluesfest. And it is another beautiful evening out.
What I like about Polson:
Beautiful area with a lot of outdoor recreation.
Super friendly people
Small town .
Lots of fun music going on all around Flathead lake in the summer months. Something I really enjoy.
Here are some photos of the area. I love the big open sky of Montana.
Blues festival above with Awesome sunset.
Kerr dam and countryside photo.
On the way to Polson, Montana I stopped off in Whitefish, Montana which is another lovely town. Reminds me of my hometown Truckee California .
Here are a few photos of Whitefish. Mountain town with a funky feel to it. Lots of nice coffee shops and restaurants.
