Chewing Blackbones Campground, Blackfeet Indian Nation
Had planned to camp for five days or so at Saint Mary’s Lake Or Many Glaciers campground on East side of Glacier National Park. Found Saint Mary’s was full so we went to the Blackfoot Nations Chewing Blackbones Campground. Some friends have like it and we shall spend the five days here since it is half way between Many Glaciers and Saint Mary’s Lake (the Going to the Sun Highway) and 30 miles from the Canadian National Park that is contiguous with Glacier. Dropped the rig at Chewing Blackbones and drove over to Many Glaciers campground but 90% of the sites were to small and filled to boot. Decided that we really did not want to stay in the National Park since the sites are cramped, close together and noisy. This place seems quiet and right on a lake.
Turns out Chewing Blackbones is the primary creation myth of the Blackfeet and concerns Old Man and Old Woman.
