An Argument for the Plains: Weekend Picture Post


I think everyone agrees that we live in the most beautiful place in the world, but I’ve noticed a no-so-subtle bias from Western Montanans, who seem to think that their mountains and forests are what makes the state such an amazing place. After a trip home last week to Toole County, I’ve got to make the case for the plains and hills of Montana.

Don’t let the quality of the photos mislead you; Northern Montana is one beautiful place.
