Labor Day Weekend Activities in the Flathead Valley

Ah, September. That pivotal switch between Summer and Fall, when children return to school, routines are reestablished and the temperatures seem to immediately drop down to sweater weather (at least in the mornings) and then fluctuate back up by happy hour.
