Lucky To Live In Montana

Saint Patrick's Day and green water on the Gallatin River

Today is Saint Patrick’s Day.  Although I am not Irish, it doesn’t take much to discern how lucky myself or anyone who lives in Montana truly is. 

Just a few days ago, I found myself on the Gallatin River on a glorious sunny day. For me and many other Montanans, a drive to a blue ribbon trout stream such as the Gallatin is only a few hours, and sometimes just minutes away…That is how lucky Montanans are.

Even in the dead of winter, Montana is bedecked in lucky green. In this case, the waters of the Gallatin River are an emerald, crystal clear green color…a color that means ‘go fly fishing today.’ :)

Of course, Montanans good fortune extends to other outdoors pursuits, as well. Our lucky green color can be found deep in the woods on a summer hike…

Or, it can be found in our very back yard.

Ultimately, deep down, Montanans know how lucky they are; and, it’s the acknowledgement of luck that prompts us to call Montana ‘The Last Best Place.’
