Montana Myths and Misunderstandings
To an outsider, Montana can be kind of a mysterious place. There's a lot of questions an average Montanan fields on a daily basis in person and now on the internet. As much as we would like to answer questions about our great state all day, there's work to be done and it's the same questions over and over again.
