A massive dam on the south fork of the Flathead River creates the Hungry Horse Reservoir, a twisty lake with ample recreational activities. A 3 day stay at the little cove called Lost Johnny Campground was a salve for the soul, with its opportunities for fishing, hiking, biking, boating and just generally letting it all go.
After talking to a local moron, we set our sights on a loop hike/bike, following a mountain road for 3 miles, before turning up towards Doris Mountain. The route proved to be way too challenging to accomplish in our timeline. Instead, we grinded up nearly 3000′ elevation in 7 miles before encroaching dark and the smell of wet dog turned us around for a downhill bomb back to the trailer.
