This past summer I spent some time in Missoula with a friend. She's a photographer too, and has a lovely blog where she posts lovely photos. I'd never been to Montana before, and while altitude sickness bowled me over for a bit after a stunningly beautiful flight, I was absolutely blown away by how beautiful this town is. The mountains, the rivers, the woods, just... everything!!! It was BEAUTIFULLLLLLLLLL and people didn't lock their DOORS and everyone wore Keens and the dogs were friendly and everyone rode bikes and sunsets were magical and there were all these perfect places to get perfect COFFEE and everything is perfect and beautiful and if I didn't live in NYC I would seriously consider relocating to someplace where, if I was going for a run and got a little overheated, I could just hop into a nearby river and cool off. Oh yeah. I did that. Missoula is pretty cool.
