On the way to Missoula

The drive between Sun Valley and Missoula is pretty unique. First, there's the Salmon River Valley, a very picturesque place and then after passing the Lost Trail ski area at 7,000 feet, a beautiful descent into the Bitterroots Valley with a stop in the charming town of Darby and its unique one-block long tourist shop with its remarkable candy section.

Missoula stands at the end of the trail with its large, older city, its many students and funky stores and restaurants. Our hotel, the C'mon Inn was the perfect log construction showcase. We drove downtown and picked a sushi place for dinner, with a tantalizing $1 for 1 offer.
Sure, it wasn't the kind of eatery we find in Park City, but it hit the spot nonetheless. Too bad that the weather – From the Lost Trail pass to Missoula was freezing!
