The Gates of the Mountains Gift Shop has been
involved in catering meals for the chartered boat tour customers for
many years. After getting lots of request for a dinner open to the
public we decided to have Friday night dinner cruises open to the
general public by reservation only.
Every Friday night from July 6, 2012 through
August 3, 2012 we will have a special evening tour after dinner. We
will offer two entrées (see schedule for entrée) each night served
buffet style in our pavilion with a view of the marina on Upper Holter
Lake. All the dinners include tossed salad, potatoes, corn on the cob,
fruit, rolls, home baked beans, ice tea, lemonade and dessert. If you
like you can bring your own bottle of wine or cooler of beverages.
After dinner we will go out on the Missouri River
for an unforgettable evening tour of the area. The tour generally lasts
two hours and is a great way to see the canyon in evening light. The
limestone cliffs are colored orange and pink by the setting sun. The
added benefit of the evening tour is that the animals come out to feed
after resting in the shade most of the day. Instead of looking for the
sheep high on the vertical cliffs you might see them right at the rivers
edge drinking from the river. Also the animals that are more nocturnal
come out like river otters, raccoons, mountain lions and night hawks.
This tour is perfect as a birthday present for
your mother or father. What could be nicer than an intimate meal with
close friends and family at the Gates of the Mountains?
