9 Must-See Attractions in Montana’s Mission Valley
Montana has some big names and well-known places (I’m talking about you Glacier National Park), but the truth of the matter is this: some of the coolest places are located off the beaten path and come in the form of small towns, destinations at the end of gravel roads, local shops and colorful characters. Keeping this in mind, last week I set out to explore one of Western Montana’s most-underrated places: the Mission Valley. And you guys, it was a perfect fall day that had picture-perfect views around every corner.
The Top 10 Things to Do Near Glacier National Park
We all know that Montana’s Glacier National Park is amazing. It just is.

Exploring the Blackfeet Nation
Last week, I headed over to the east side of the Continental Divide to spend a bit of time on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.

Montana: This is Winter Country
Winter arrived late to Western Montana. My guess? She wanted to make an entrance. And that’s fine with me…I’m not going to point fingers, cuss her out or give her the silent treatment. Why? Because she’s here now and let’s face it, she really looks quite lovely.
