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. I mean, does it get much better than 1 million acres of glacial-carved terrain, the epic Going-to-the-Sun Road and the feeling you get just being in Glacier National Park? Maybe not.

A Weekend at Home in Augusta, Montana
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know by now that I’m a Montana girl through and through. I live here, love it here and my soul feels at home here.

For me, home is a 2-hour drive over the mountains to a small town that sits along Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front: Augusta.
The Top 5 Winter Activities in Montana
I’m just going to say it: winter in Montana is the stuff that powder-lovin’ dreams are made of. Not only are we situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, but four Montana ski resorts recently ranked among the “Top 10 Deepest Snowpacks in the US” list. Combine that with sunshine, cute towns and some of the most epic terrain in the continental U.S., and it’s no wonder winter is one of Montana’s most fun-filled seasons.
Visiting Montana’s Northwest Corner
There are some places in Montana that are still wild, free and undisturbed. And for this messy-haired Montana girl that grew up in the shadow of the Rocky Mountain Front, it’s probably no surprise that my soul connects with places that are wild and free. Earlier this month, I was able to connect with one such place: Western Montana’s Lincoln County.
Soaking up the Last Days of a Montana Summer
Summer is almost over. You know it, I know it — we all know it. And while it makes me a little bit sad, I’m trying to put on my big girl pants and relish in the last days of the Montana summer. To make good on that goal, my best friend came out to Montana […]
Top Picks for August Activities in Western Montana
You guys, summer is almost over! Okay fine…I realize that may be a bit dramatic, but this summer has literally flown by so quickly. For example, I have yet to float the river. For a Montana girl, that is a total travesty. But I’m determined to put an end to the sweet days of summer slipping from my grasp right here and now.

Exploring Montana (and Wyoming) on the Beartooth Highway
You would think by this stage in my life, I would have seen everything there was to see in Montana…right? Alas, that is not the case. Believe it or not, this messy haired girl has a list of things to see and do in Big Sky Country. For example, for the last five years I’ve […]
