Driving through Montana for the first time, you will immediately understand, “Big Sky Country”. Truthfully, the whole region just calls out “big sky” and “wide open spaces”.
Coming from the East Coast, my first experiences exploring Montana, Idaho and Wyoming about 12 years ago were positively life changing … ahhh, “I can breathe”. Who knew how much less people, over the top natural beauty and what felt like endless open space could have on a person (me). Sometimes I attempt to describe these feelings to friends and family back east only to watch the deeply puzzled look on their faces in response …“greeeat”. They try to understand, but I am not so sure they really get it or care to. Different strokes for different folks … it is what makes life more interesting.
Anyway, from browsing numerous blog posts written by those who obviously love the mountains, I came across, From the Front Porch written by a woman living in the Flathead Valley, Montana. She shares her experiences living in Montana, her thoughts about life and love sitting on her front porch, walking her dog and continually exploring the very beautiful Flathead Valley. Check out her photos and read about some of the true simple joys that come along with living in Montana.
