Honky Tonkin’


It was a cold and rainy day at Glacier National Park today.  In other words, it was a perfect day to knock off early and hit one of the roadside juke joints that are found along Route 2 close to the western entrance to the Park.

We chose a honky tonk called Packer’s  Roost that turned out to be a good spot.  The bartender was friendly, the jukebox was playing some good tunes, the lighting was dim, and the prices were right.   We learned that the bar is a hangout for annual visitors to the Park, who commemorate their visits by marking, dating and coloring dollar bills and nailing them to the walls and ceiling.  It added a certain element of rustic charm.

I had a draft beer called Moose Drool that was pretty good and ice cold, by the way.
