Where I stayed
We have been very busy fishing, gold panning, playing golf, working on the ranch, and hiking, biking and four-wheeling in the hills around the ranch. We enjoyed coming to town regularly to try the various coffee shops. The MK Steakhouse out in the country was very good also.
We visited Kootenai Falls, Lake Kookanusa, Kalispell, Glacier Wilderness Resort, Eureka, Troy, Yaak Falls and most of Lincoln County, Montana.
Shelby got to shoot all of Grandpas guns. She chopped down rhubarb and made some delicious rhubarb pies
The new name of Grandpa's ranch came from the many wandering moose sightings on his property while we were here.
Mike and Grandpa played golf one day in Libby with Grandpa's 78-year-old cowboy friend Don. Don lives southern California but comes to Troy, Montana from June to November. Grandpa and Don share ownership of an ancient Harley Davidson golf cart.
Grandpa bought a house on the golf course while we were here. We have been helping him get ready to move which he should be doing in just a couple of weeks. His ranch is for sale for $1.3 million...anybody interested? When he moves, he'll be in town and much closer to everything he needs.
The last night in Libby, we went to town and played pool and video poker, where Maggie won $7.25!
We'll miss the ranch but will always enjoy coming back to Libby and visiting with Grandpa!
