This Trip Will Satisfy Boozers and Birdwatchers

by Sarah Kmon

We think you should come and visit Red Ants Pants via Great Falls.

You may see a view like this if you do.

But you must do it in March because Freezout Lake is the stopover point for as many as 300,000 snow geese and 10,000 tundra swans making their way to Canada from Texas.

If you don’t like the idea of being a birdwatcher, you can shake that feeling in the evening by heading to the Sip n Dip Lounge – a bar with a window to the subsurface level of a swimming pool. Their claim to fame is that the bar was “‘named the #1 bar on earth worth flying for’ by GQ Magazine”. I guess it’s worth going to.

On your way down to White Sulphur Springs the next day, plan a meal at the Lazy Doe in Monarch.

When you get to White Sulphur Springs, check in to the All Seasons, and soak in the hotsprings, next door. Mmmmm.

The next morning (make sure it isn’t a Sunday) soak again, eat breakfast at Dori’s on main street, then stop by Red Ants Pants for a chat, a hot drink, or the purchase of some durable women’s workpants.

On your return to Great Falls from Red Ants Pants, stop in at the Harvest Moon Brewing Company in Belt, but not before you hit the slopes of Showdown for some late season skiing.

Have fun!
