I didn't know Missoula was Blue! Visited there, passing thru on western trip w family, had represented Montana Rail Link in rail merger matter (for Interstate Commerce Commission) so actually walked thru the facility.

Thankfully Missoula is still hippie blue. I don’t think I could shoulder the redness of Montana if not for this refuge. I can’t imagine why Don Jr. would be here other than the GOP is gunning hard for Jon Tester.

Last time I was there on my birthday I climbed to top of the M for fun.

Liked your city, Montana is a beautiful state.

You’d think they’d visit a Montana city that wasn’t blue. That said…there are plenty of MAGAts here…they’re pretty shy with their red hats these days however.

I hope they get their noses rubbed in it.

I did, on my journey east last week, encounter a pair of former rumpers. They were nice though that's their business they were genuinely nice. But J6 did it for them as the hubby is a vet. Still CS mongers but not voting for the orange guy.

I suspect there's more of that than many re willing to admit.

I mean, as a resident of Greater Seattle, I'm used to beautiful landscapes. But I'd like to visit Montana, and not have to deal with red-state horseshit the whole time.

Maybe someday...

I’m in Vancouver, WA often to visit my cousin. The Columbia River Basin is freaking gorgeous!

Missoula is chock full of artists, writers and musicians and still feels like a small town. I’m grateful to have raised my kiddo here.

Come visit sometime! Missoulians are lovely people.
