Back Under the Big Sky

It took Rob and I nine years to finally make it back to Montana. There was a draw to this state that even we could not nail down. Most of our family probably thought we were crazy to obsess over a state. At times, so did we. But no matter what we did, we could not make the desire to be back in Montana go away. If anything, it got stronger the more we tried to ignore it.

Now that we are back, it feels as though we never even left. We seem to have picked up right where we left off.  I cannot say just what it is about Montana that kept calling to us, but it seems at though John Steinbeck understood the feeling:

“I am in love with Montana.  For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection.  But with Montana it is love.  And it’s difficult to analyze love when you are in it.”  -John Steinbeck, “Travels with Charley”
