Montana. Paradise. Some describe Montana as the most beautiful place in the world. Picture perfect. Some who visit, say that they experience a connection, sense of belonging, a feeling that no other land has ever given them. There is something about Montana that people are captivated by.
I think John Steinbeck said it best.
“I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love. And it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it.”
The truth is, Montana is a magical state. Montana makes you feel a bit love drunk. When you say Montana, you smile. Everybody loves Montana. I don't blame them, but nobody will love Montana more than a Montanan.
Another favorite quote of mine is from Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam.
“The best-kept secret about Montana is the women. They are tough, smart, sexy, and kind-hearted. It’s a lucky guy that ends up with a Montana gal.”
Truth be told, this Montana love that everyone is talking about isn't anything new. People have been in love with Montana before Montana was even Montana.
