Besides the pleasure of catching up with long time friends, we were treated to the spectacular scenery of Glacier National Park and the National Bison Range (which our friends' ranch nearly abuts) as well as a trip around Flathead Lake.
Along the way, we spied lots of wildlife: bears, bighorn sheep, deer, bison, antelope and more.
The invitation to visit had been in place for a couple of years, but there was always something in the way that kept us from making the connection.
Now, after experiencing a taste of Montana, I wonder why we ever delayed and am already thinking about how to get back to explore further.
