Local color, the Hungry Horse Dam & a scary attic

After working up an appetite on the Avalanche trail, stopped in for some sustenance at a local watering hole…It was very “colorful” as they say…Friendly barmaid and a handful of Montana mountain men.

On the way back to Columbia Falls, I swung by the Hungry Horse Dam, the 11th highest concrete dam in the  US.

Stopped for a cocktail at the Blue Moon Bar and Casino.

Have I mentioned that it’s all about hunting in these parts? Taxidermy shops and small bars / casinos are as common as nail salons back in LA. When I walked into the Blue Moon, it was like walking into a natural history museum (and I’m not talking about just the patrons either).

Later, the granddaughter of the owner took me on a private tour of the attic that was jam packed with the owner’s “trophies” of big game from Canada, Alaska, Montana, etc…It was like something out of a horror movie, a bit creepy, and way over the top for this animal lover.
