Woodsy Walk, Missoula, Montana

Moving from rural Alberta to rural Montana, I expected things would be much the same. But I learned that Montana is unique from its neighbors in many ways. Language is a prime example. Looking at the above scene, a Montanan doesn't see trees marching up and over into a gully, but into a draw. Example: "Shhh! The biggest muley in the county just walked down into that draw!" For more Montana vernacular, click here to browse Todd Klassy's list, then be sure to view the stunning photos in his site.
