Exploring Montana’s small towns.

For over 200 years, explorers, dreamers, and entrepreneurs have been drawn to the serenity of Montana and its promise of adventure. As they settled, they longed for the amenities and support of a community, and eventually founded towns on hillsides, along rivers, and in valleys. As resources dwindled and dreams faded, communities shrank. In their wake, they left behind skeletal remains that can still be explored today. This summer, pack up the car with tents, sleeping bags, bikes, boats, and fishing rods and head off in the spirit of the Treasure State's founders. Here are some destinations to check out.

Adrenaline pumped through my body as I took my first step on the infamous Bridger Ridge Run. The runners in the front set the pace for a long climb up the narrow path up Sacajawea Peak. I blew past the aid station and onto the loose shale field, trying to remember to stay low and confident as I stumbled and surfed down the jagged rocks. I reached the descent to the Bridger Foothills Trail before Ross Pass, leaning forward yelling, “I can’t stop!” After taking a two-week sick-break, my legs felt fresh and ready to tackle the trail. I reached the halfway point at Bridger Bowl after a long blackout climb, thrilled to see friends cheering me on.
