Travel to Montana, USA with Lynne Marshall

Last August we visited a state we’d never been to before, Montana. I’ve always wanted to go there but had yet to make it. So when my husband suggested we take a trip to Montana and North Dakota, I was quick to sign on.

We’d visited Wyoimg_3706-jpg-montanaming and South Dakota a few years back, so it only made sense to head north. We arrived in Missoula. The next day we headed for Whitefish, Mt, a cute and trendy kind of town, then on to Glacier National Park where we spent two of the most wonderful days of our lives sightseeing and hiking. We spent one very long driving day through the grassland and prairies of Montana, stayed the night in Glasgow, MT (I bet you didn’t know Glasgow existed in MT) then on to North Dakota. After two days we came back to Billings, Montana for two days.

I hope you enjoy this little taste of Montana. I’m smiling remembering the gorgeous views.

They call Montana the Big Sky state for a good reason.

University of Montana in Missoula is a great place to study – we had to watch out for the wild bicyclists around this lovely lake.fullsizerender-jpg-mt-2img_3673-jpg-mtimg_3674-jpg-mtimg_3678-jpg-mt

I would go back to Montana in a heartbeat because there is so much more to see of the Treasure State.

Lynne Marshall has a new book out this month:

Her Baby, His Love

All Taylor Clark ever wanted was a normal life and a traditional family, but so far she’s had neither. Soon after discovering that her boyfriend was secretly engaged and she moves to Charity, Montana for a fresh start, she realizes she’s pregnant. As her new friendly and sexy landlord helps her settle in, they become friends, although Taylor has to keep reminding herself to keep her distance. The last thing she needs is to start something new.

As an ex-con, Joe Collins knows a little something about fresh starts. Despite his determination to keep his head down, he can’t ignore Taylor’s natural beauty or obvious vulnerability. In short time, a tentative friendship blooms along with something more precious—trust.

When Taylor’s ex comes to town, he threatens everything that Joe and Taylor have built together. Joe steps up to care for and protect her, even though he risks losing more than the woman he loves.

      Hi Barbara – We live in California where there are many gorgeous places to visit – the Redwoods, Yosemite, etc, but my husband and I agreed that Glacier National Park was even more beautiful. I could have shared a hundred pictures! lol Oh, and I love that book cover, too. Thanks for reading the blog.

      Pam – there is a reason so many movies and books are set in the Big Sky State. It truly is gorgeous. Tough weather to deal with much of the year though.

    If it just weren’t so darned cold in the winter, I’d live there. Beautiful open space, and those skies are amazing.

      C. Lee – so true, we were there in August, and in Glacier National park the temps ranged from warm to really cold in the higher elevations. A person would have to be a hardy soul to live there, something this California native is not. 😉

    Beautiful state. I love the horses. We’d edged into Montana via Yellowstone many years ago but never went any further north. I’d love to go back and see Montana and the Badlands of the Dakotas.

    I worked in Montana for a summer–West Yellowstone. It’s such beautiful country, but WAY too cold. Brr! No offense, Montana, but I don’t like snow on June mornings. That’s just not cool. Or maybe it’s too cool.

      Crystal – I hear you on the too cold part. Only rugged, hardy people can live there. I love visiting, though!

      Hi Anna – you and many other readers seem to love books set in Montana. It’s an easy setting to imagine and fall in love with. Glad you enjoyed the views.

    Wonderful photos–I’d like to spend more time in Montana. I’ve driven across the state, took the train across it, and spent a week in the early 90s backpacking in the Beartooth Wilderness (it was an incredible trip).

      Sage, Montana is the perfect place to backpack. However, the bear issue is a big one! Glad your trip was safe. Go again and enjoy!

      Hi Elizabeth – I agree about the perfection of Glacier – unfortunately it started out loooong ago with 184 glaciers, I believe there are only 24 or 25 left, and they are growing smaller and smaller. ;(

    Oh my goodness- I need to get to Montana! I loved looking through these pictures. Stunning views. I also love animals- especially horses, so it looks like there are a lot of animals to see there too. Thanks so much for sharing this special state with us. 🙂

      Hi Jess!
      Thank you for reading the blog and commenting. One of the things I loved most about Montana was seeing horses in wide-open-spaces, running free. Loved it!

    I’ll have to admit, Montana is not a place I’d think to visit. I would strongly reconsider that now. As for Big Sky, Big Sky Brewing is one of my favorite beer brands. Very good stuff!

      So glad to have changed (or at least opened) your mind about visiting Montana. Ah, yes, beer! I’m going to have to try that beer.
