Day 366: A Fish Story

I added a new photograph to Creative Journey in my Photography section, Pike

We headed out last Thursday in the late morning. Sun shining. A bit of cloud cover. Top down in the convertible. It's only about a 3 hour drive from Post Falls, Idaho to Hamilton, Montana. We were footloose and fancy free!

We stopped for lunch in St. Regis, Montana ... just across the border. There's a nice touristy place called the Huckleberry Patch. They've got a little cafe with some of the nicest waitresses you'll ever meet. Good food, served quickly ... including some homemade huckleberry pie!

There's also a good-sized gift shop where you can get Montana souvenirs. I got huckleberry lip balm. Lips get chapped out there on the road with the wind blowing when you're singing at the top of your lungs to old Carly Simon tunes!

In the back of the gift shop is a series of large fish tanks holding examples of the aquatic population of the Clark Fork River. This pike sat up and smiled for me. :)
