POTD: Like Kansas With Mountains

POTD: Like Kansas With MountainsLike Kansas With Mountains Highway 191, Montana 2014

Over Memorial Day weekend Western Montana was teaming with the usual crowds inaugurating the summer season. We avoided the congestion by heading east to the wide open spaces out on the plains. You don’t have to be from Kansas to appreciate eastern Montana, but it certainly helps; miles and miles of treeless pastures and wheat fields are an acquired taste. I see three distinct advantages to recommend eastern Montana over Kansas though–lower humidity, lack of a roads along every section line, and forested mountain ranges sprinkled around for variety.]]>
