Right, we'll be coming through Kalispell on our way from Missoula, because we will want to make the most of the day we might leave early morning and get some miles under us before stoping for breakfast (is there any recommendations for this on the Missoula-Kalispell road?).Okay, so you all are going be going across the Going to the Sun Road in GNP Tuesday 5 July. The last I saw, was that you are coming up from Missoula Tuesday morning, is your route bring you through Kalispell?
My next question was going to be if we should go west or east of Flathead Lake, our map has us going on Hwy 35 on the east side but the thought had occurred to me that this being the morning hours, having the sun over the lake might make for pretty good scenery. SO, would you recommend taking the 35 or staying on the 93? talking from the standpoint of quality of scenery and overall more enjoyable road.Just wondering where we can make the hookup. I live on the west outskirts of Kalispell. I think I saw something that you were coming up MT Hwy 35, the east shore road into Bigfork. I could meet you at Woody's Country Store at the junction of MT Hwy 35 & MT Hwy 206. It's the only gas station/store/bar at that intersection.
Absolutely, I'll PM you my number.We could exchange cell numbers to make the hookup easier, PM me if you want to do that.
We have reservations to stay the next night in Pincher Creek, AB. So depending on how the day goes we might just skip Waterton NP, none of us are fun of ridding unknown roads in the dark so after we go up the Going to the Sun Road we will play it by ear, hopefully we'll have time to at least do a ride by in Waterton but GNP is definitely our priority. We also need tips on where to stop for lunch and the best unknown spots for pix.Other questions, how far do you plan going on the 5th? Where are you stopping for the night? How much sightseeing do you want to do in GNP? With the traffic in GNP I'd plan 3 to 4 hours to cross the Park.
Looking forward to meeting you, more important, looking forward to ridding in your back yard.
