Growing up I had a THING for western horses, and Montana was definitely on my list of states that sounded perfect. There is a tiny part of me that still wants to saddle up and ride out. But the truth is that I’m far more of a dude (in the rancher sense) than a rancher. We all have to face facts at some point. (For those who don’t know, dude in this case means fashionable townie type – i.e., NOT a real rancher type.)
But part of my fantasy is kept alive because I have in-laws who are LIVING THE LIFE with a ranch out there. And one of my favorite things is that our aunt sends us huckleberry EVERYTHING. I will admit to being a little addicted to huckleberry tea. Yum.
What shouldn’t I miss in Montana? To my Montanans, drop a comment with a tour or food suggestion for a chance to win a book!
