I am from Montana. There is something absolutely wonderful about Montana. It is an energy, a peaceful tone or spirit, you feel the moment you arrive and that you sense is missing the moment you leave. Montana is a place of beautiful, vast extremes, each deserving of admiration: mountains to prairies, summer heat to bitter winter cold, pines to sagebrush, miles of peaceful solitude to the wave of a fellow Montanan passing by. And of course there is, above it all, the beautiful Big Sky. I am proud to be a Montanan. There really is "no place like home." Montana is truely the "Last Best Place" as it can't get any better than this.
(Oh, and everyone loves a Montana girl.)
