I was in Montana last summer for a family reunion in Belt. We spent much of our time around Great Falls, but the rest of the time was spent driving a big loop through the state. Cities included in this thread are Billings, Great Falls, Helena, and Butte, with other pictures of the countryside, smaller towns, and even a ghost town. Enjoy!
