From Butte, we went on to Missoula, which is one of my favorite places in Montana. When my parents were attending the University of Idaho in northern Idaho when I was little, they stopped in Missoula frequently on their way home to visit family -- and it's still a really cool town and just as pretty as I remember it. Think college town + outdoorsy culture + mountain village. I don't know if that makes sense, but it's a bigger city that still feels really small. Also, they have the most incredible fish tacos, about three times the size of the (now) puny ones I get at Del Taco. I'm already craving them -- which is why there are two photos of deliciousness below. YUM.
That's all for Butte and Missoula! Photos of Big Fork and then Glacier National Park are up next.
