Travel Stories: Our Northwest Road Trip Part 1 | Montana + Apgar Lookout Trail

First, I’d like to announce that I’ve opened up a print shop for some of mine and Vincent’s travel photos. We see so many beautiful places and have so many stunning landscapes just laying around that I thought it might be nice to start a fun shop! It is an awesome place to support our art, get some wall decor, or even order some cards for the next holiday. I’ll try to keep this as curated as possible but please let me know if there is anything you’d like to see in there!

Ok, back to this road trip! We are heading west!

Exploring:

Polebridge, Montana

I’ve been to Polebridge so many times that the mercantile has started giving me the locals discount. I seriously come here every chance I get! I enjoy spending time off the grid in such a stunning place. I also have an obsession with my Auntie Jiffy who lives here year round. Last winter, Mikaila & Kyle’s Glacier Park engagement session brought me to a winter wonderland but this spring, their Whitefish Mountain Resort wedding brought me to a whole new Polebridge; a place full of spring flowers!

Hiking:

Apgar Lookout Trail

Every visit, I try to do a new hike either in Glacier or around Polebridge. Originally, we were going to try out the Iceberg Lake trail, but with it being so early in the year, it was still snowed in! As a last minute Plan B, we took on Apgar Lookout Trail. Past fires have left this trail a little exposed so it was HOT. The sun was beating down on us the entire 7.3 miles and 2,000 ft of elevation gain. Looking at the photos, I actually forget how rough this hike ended up being because it all looks so pretty and peaceful!

Road Trip:

Montana

I feel like some of our best photos are taken on the side of the road. We often find cool places on the smallest back roads where there seem to be no other souls.
