Quick!!

Name three cities or towns in Montana.

Not as easy as you think.

Better yet, as your child to point out Montana on a US map.

Why are we discussing Montana at all?

BTW, I would love to go there to see the mountains, streams and some fishing.

Helena, Bozeman, Billings, Butte, Mizzoula.

I’ve been through Montana several times now (having moved to Seattle from the East and out to Iowa from Seattle, including a road trip.)

In a way, I was surprised by the towns there. A lot bigger than I would have guessed, though not huge and with the parks there are little way stations of civilization throughout much of Montana.

And absolutely beautiful scenery. Must be absolute hell in winter, though, if Iowa is any indication.

I'll stay in Tennessee.

Tennessee Constitution:
Section 26. That the citizens of this state have a right to keep and to bear arms for their common defense; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms with a view to prevent crime.

I'd just have him step out the back porch door, and point North. Though Devil's Tower sort of blocks a direct view.

The first one that came to my mind was the old mining camp town of Bannack, where the citizens were so annoyed with the criminal exploits of their crooked sheriff that they formed a Committee of Vigilence and hanged Sheriff Plummer and several of his henchmen.

Divide and Coolidge, once stops on the 38-mile-long Montana Southern Railroad also come to mind, though now under the population level of 300 required for town charters under state law.
