No matter how you might feel about these strange times, we can all admit that having more time to explore our beautiful state is a good thing. And if you happen to live within a few hours of Lake County, we highly recommend taking a little day trip to the tiny town of St. Ignatius. Not only can you get a glimpse of a breathtaking historic mission, but there’s a waterfall hike just outside of town that most Montanans don’t even know about.

Note: The Flathead Indian Reservation had to temporarily close their recreation areas for non-residents earlier this year. Check the current status before you go to make sure things are open, and if nothing else, bookmark this idea for later.

Have you ever been inside the beautiful St. Ignatius Mission?
