Do you ever have those moments when you realize that you are totally head over heels in love with something? I have. And the fact of the matter is that right now, at this moment, I don’t think I could be more in love with Montana. While I realize that I’m totally partial to Big Sky Country, I also feel justified in being so smitten with her.
Now you may be thinking something along the lines of, “Tia, how could you be that in love with Montana? What is it about the Treasure State that has you so smitten?
Well, I’ve actually thought quite a bit about that very question. You know, just in case someone were to ask me. Here are some of the reasons why Montana has my heart…
Her big, blue sky.
The love that Montanans have for our state.
This quote from Brad Tyer sums it up best, “Montana is one of those American states that exert a magnetism and inspire a loyalty far out of proportion to any sober appraisal.”
Seriously, they are incredible. For example, from my house in Montana’s second largest city, I can be in the wilderness in 10 minutes. And that, my friends, is awesome.
Montana’s small towns.
From Ekalaka in the southeast corner to Troy in the northwest corner, I love all of them.
The eclectic characters that live in Montana’s small towns.
Side note: I can totally say that because I’m from a small town. 😉
Glacier National Park.
No matter how much time I spend there, this place touches my soul to the core.
