And you can’t understand how sharing a piece of homemade huckleberry pie with a fourth-generation rancher from Choteau can make the big skies of Montana not so big after all. Some places are the same whether you view them from the pages of a magazine or from the soles of your own traveling shoes. Montana is not one of those places. Our real treasures are beyond the obvious sweeping vistas, pristine trout streams, and powder-rich ski areas. It’s time to dig in.
