It is located 1.5 miles southeast of East Glacier Park Village and 3.0 to 4.0 miles southwest of the same village of East Glacier Park Village. Almost all of the housing units are located along Heart Butte Cutoff Road and a couple of other roads which branch off from Heart Butte Cutoff Road. The housing units number about 30 or so. Like East Glacier Park Village, Lodgepole deals with occasional strong chinook winds during the winter months. It is not shielded by mountains. You can tell by the first few google earth photos below. However, Highway 2 going southwest towards the Reservations border, is shielded by mountains. That location may not deal with the strong chinook winds as frequently as the location along Heart Butte Cutoff Road. There are only a couple of housing units located along Highway 2. To the east of Highway 2, the mountains get higher in elevation and several large and small lakes are in them. From an elevation of 4,800 feet above sea level on Highway 2, the mountains just to the east, rise to over 5,300 feet above sea level. Of the two locations, the location adjacent to Highway 2 must be a stronger attraction. Both locations are ideal to commence towns but the location adjacent to Highway 2 is more preferable. Negotiations with the railroad company must be first addressed. The railroad follows Highway 2 to the border of the Reservation. I named this area Lodgepole, after one of the streets which branch off of Heart Butte Cutoff Road. The population is probably between 60 and 80. That's if the housing units are permanent and not cottages. Below are several google earth photos of this area of the Blackfeet Reservation.
