The Packers ...

I thought I'd follow up on yesterday's post about small-town gathering places by posting a photo of another one ... proving that not all are as picturesque as the café in Willow Creek. This is Packer's Roost, a little ways outside of Coram in Bad Rock Canyon, up in Flathead County. Certain evenings, it can be quite an adventuresome place.

I have to confess that I spent a bit of time at Packers back in the day. It was one of a long series of watering holes known colloquially as "The Trapline," extending from Glacier Park all the way to Kalispell. "Running the Trapline" was a favorite nocturnal activity for the young and foolish back then, and maybe it still is.
