Twin Bridges -- 28 miles from Dillon, just up Mont. 41, a faded billboard proclaims Twin Bridges to be the platinum capital of the Western world, an odd designation for a town that seems to be much more famous regionally for great fishing. "Floating Flotillas & Fish Fantasies" is the name given to the tiny town's annual summer festival, held in late July or early August, with highlights that include the extremely popular floating parade on the Beaverhead, dances, and a barbecue. Locals are even given the chance to show their skills at fly-casting, and there's a tug of war over the river.
