Meet me in Montana

Have you ever been to a place that doesn’t simply get under your skin, it gets into your soul? A place that is physically painful to be away from?

Memorial Day.

For so many people Memorial Day simply means a long weekend. An extra day off from work. The start of summer. Barbecues, picnics, and camping.
