High Plains Drifter believes in “roughing it in style.” Our overnight trips cater to your every need. Just bring your personal gear and sleeping bag. Camp consists of waterproof tents you can stand up in. Sturdy cots, equipped Therm-a-rest pads, provide a comfortable place for the weary fly fisher to rest. Our dining area is complete with table and chairs, and covered by a stout rain-fly.
All meals are strictly first class. Breakfast could see banana-nut French toast, eggs laced with sautéed vegetables and cheese, set off with a lean breakfast sausage. Fresh fruit, granola, and yogurt are always available, as well. Lunch might be an entree salad, or a delectable sandwich surrounded by fresh salsa, chips, dessert, and snacks. Dinner begins with an appetizer and cocktail, if you wish.
One example is a grilled brie topped with pesto and served with a crusty French bread. A light salad with a Montana huckleberry dressing can follow either the appetizer or the entree, according to your preference. The evening entree might feature a grilled chicken breast, encrusted with fresh rosemary, garlic, and cracked black pepper, served with a Chardonnay Beurre Blanc. Alongside, you might find delicate pasta accented with tomatoes, herbs, and Asiago cheese. A medley of fresh summer vegetables accompanies every dinner. Riverside desserts range from sugared pineapple with kirsch, to homemade vanilla ice cream topped with brandied Flathead cherries. The catching may be tricky, but the eating is always easy!
