Montana is one of my favorite places on Earth. It's just gorgeous with its sense of space and varied terrain.
Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, and I spent a beautiful May afternoon kayaking on the east side of the lake near the town of Bigfork.
It was so amazing that I vowed to return to Montana. Somehow I also ended up buying a Montana State Parks Pass, so that's an added incentive for me to come back!
