The Writers Workshop will be at the Mission Builders International facility in Lakeside, just 45 minutes drive from the entrance to Glacier National Park. This national treasure has some of the most ruggedly beautiful mountain country in the world. You may want to extend your stay to explore this spectacular region of western Montana. Glacier’s famous red bus tour is an eight-hour journey ($100 per person) that takes you to the western summit of what’s called the Crown of the Continent.
