The park changed dramatically in color and scale as I got close to Montana, some great views from the truly elevated highway, waterfalls, black bears, bison and scattered snowfall. My sustenance along the drive consisted mainly of fruit, granola bars and various nuts. I touched base with my hosts in Kalispell to let them know I would be arriving in the afternoon the following day. The guy promised me that he wasn't a serial killer, but his girlfriend
said that she wouldn't make any promises.... I let them know that I
deemed 50/50 to be pretty good odds. After leaving the park I found a small diner, since it was early in the season most everything surrounding the park was still closed down. The diner was quiet and rustic, family operated, there were some young kids with the hostess... this was in Emigrant, after eating my first real solid meal of the day, a quality burger, the waitress directed me to a small fishing landing that had camping available, I could hear the trout feeding consistantly all through the night and into the morning... no other campers here.
