Do you love mountains?
- Yes? Me too! I love the challenge of getting to the top!
- No? I get that. They’re steep, and sometimes it seems the trail will never end.
But this summer I conquered the best mountain of all.
You won’t find Huckleberry Mountain on a map. You’ll find it on the menu at Two Sisters Café in Babb, Montana. We were staying at the Rising Sun Motor Lodge in Glacier Park, and we needed food, so on the recommendation of the registrar at the motor lodge we ventured to Two Sisters. It was hard to miss the building. It was painted purple—the color of Montana’s beloved huckleberry.
If you’ve never tasted a huckleberry, you must do it soon! Huckleberries grow in the wild (you can’t grow your own—sorry). The bushes can be found in Montana and Idaho and other places in the Pacific Northwest. Grizzly bears love huckleberries, so if you go picking, you better stay alert! Many people compare huckleberries to blueberries, but I think the huckleberry is tastier. A little tart, but when you mix it with sugar of any kind, it becomes my dessert of choice!
So, of course I ordered the Huckleberry Mountain. The menu described it as this:
Here it is … (I ate the cherry before I remembered to take the picture):
And there it goes …
It took me five minutes (maybe less) to destroy Huckleberry Mountain. My hubby took a bit longer to finish his huckleberry shake (probably trying to avoid an ice cream headache). I might have given him a bite or two.
It was the easiest mountain I’ve ever conquered. Try it sometime when you are in Babb, Montana!
**note: I shared this Bible verse because it mentions a mountain. It has everything to do with having faith in God to do impossible things, and nothing to do with me throwing down a tasty dessert. That’s never been impossible!
