Road Trip - Day 2
We decided to start our day with a cool morning 3 mile walk along Lake Coeur de Alene. After a quick Costco trip we found ourselves on a stalled I-90. Luckily, our maps app routed us on a 30 mile detour on a mountain dirt road. It was surreal being in heavy traffic on a washboard mountain road. We left I-90 at St. Regis and headed for Polson. We stopped in St. Ignatius mission church and appreciated the fresco paintings. The motel situation looked pretty dire in the Flathead area with Motel 6 at $110 and no vacancies. We found a lakeside dumpy trumpy in Polson for $95. Poop on the toilet seat and curtains too small for the window highlighted this gem. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4.5 mile evening walk and dinner at a lakeside Mexican restaurant.
