Beautiful photos!

Y'know, perhaps my favorite place to live was north-east Montana, just a short drive from the Montana Badlands (Hell Creek Formation). The most gorgeous, silent, holy-feeling place I've ever been, surrounded by tens of millions of years of history exposed to the sun, dead-silent except for the wind.

Western Montana is that kind of dramatic beautiful that makes everyone sigh, but I prefer the ancient land. Add the two together, and you have one of my favorite states. Pity that so many of the natives are less than friendly to strangers.

Hmmm. I was born and raised in Montana, and have seen the wonders of the Big Sky. However, one of my least favorite places to live was Culbertson. I did hard time teaching high school and going through a divorce. But I feel better now.

...and I did hard time in Peerless. Small world and all that! Yeah, the place itself is gorgeous, but the people made it a place I cannot live. I could give you a whole lot of examples of how it's still the Wild West out there, but I'm sure you experienced it, too. If only the people didn't make it unlivable, I would have stayed out there. Wildflowers along the sides of the highways for hundreds of miles, antelope running along the hills, the stars so bright against the black sky, dinosaurs all around you - the place is magic, but the people ruin it.
