This is Montana... Southwest Montana

Southwest Montana is a unique place in the American mountain west—a corner of the nation, for the most part, sparsely inhabited and free of man’s intrusion. Human presence is dwarfed by the immensity of a prominent landscape of high mountain and valleys with a rich history. Its beauty and possibilities are so enduring that they have lured men and women’s hearts to ranching, mining and recreation for more than a hundred years. And here true Montana traditions continue—cattle graze, hay is cut, hard work abounds, old trails are still used, wildlife roams freely and blue-ribbon trout streams meander through.
