Grizz Bear-y Pie (Huckleberry Ice Cream)
Crust: 6/10; as a single-crust pie, the crust-to-filling ratio is somewhat sparse, though the crust edge had a nice flakiness and was clearly baked in-house.
Ice Cream: 7/10; while I am not sure of the name of the creamery, it seems that most establishments in the Glacier National Park area procure their huckleberry ice cream from the same vendor – it is above average.
