It’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is almost upon us. For me, that means heading to my childhood home on Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front and eating all the turkey and prime rib my dad has cooked, as well as trying my hand at baking pies. (Let’s just say pie baking is not my strong suit, but I’m working on it).
But in case you’re going to be in Montana and would rather leave the cooking to someone else (which is kind of awesome), I’ve rounded up some of the Thanksgiving events, buffets and happenings throughout Glacier Country.
