Day 62: Polebridge, MT July 18, 2007

Posted by jonpierson in Uncategorized.

60 miles to the border!

I’m taking today to explore more of Glacier National Park. I’ll be hiking with Matt, who I met at the hostel. We’re headed to the end of Bowman Lake where we’ll spend the night at a backcountry campsite. It looks like a wonderful spot. 7.1 miles each way. It’ll be great to take a hike, and get off the bike for a day.

Last night I rolled into Polebridge after saying goodbye to the crew at Agpar. I biked 25 miles to the Northern Lights Saloon for a great dinner and live music too! They have a cool outdoor stage and a really unique scene. They supposedly have a great bakery in town too at the “Merc.” For a small town, there sure is a lot of cool stuff going on here! After dinner last night, I showed up at the hostel to a jam session. The wine was flowing, as was the music! It was a blast. If you ever make it to Glacier, you should try to spend a night in Polebridge! Talk to Oliver or Jodie at the North Fork Hostel, they will hook you up.

I also spoke with a reporter from the Arizona Daily Sun yesterday, so keep your fingers crossed, there may be more press on my ride soon!

Thats about it. I’m off to the woods now for an overnight hike. Thanks for checking in!

I’m not thrilled about you being on your own. You are now in grizzly country, as I’m sure you know.

Stay safe, and call often.

Love, Dad

unbelievable trip. You’ve been awesome!

Nice talking to you a while ago. Guess I’ll have to pony up some $$$ in the near future. Waiting for an exact count, and to hear you’re on your way home.
