Montana’s Golden Triangle

Montana breaks the state up into regions.   If you are coming here as a tourist there is a booklet for each of the regions, highlighting the history, things to do, places to stay and whole bunches more.    I live in the southwest region of the state often called the Gold West region because this is where it all started after Lewis & Clark.   There was gold found in the region and it was to be during those early times, people came in search of quick riches.    Last week I was in what we call the Golden Triangle.    Not because of the gold that you find in southwest Montana, but because of the golden wheat fields that you find in that region.   It is a pretty spectacular place to visit at this time of the year, because the wheat is curing and it is gold as far as you can see.    The sky was cloudy or full of smoke from the fire in Glacier park so it was hard to capture what I was seeing but here is my best shot looking at what I had to pick from.

There are thousands of acres of wheat the golden triangle.   The points of the triangle are Havre, Conrad and Great Falls.  Lots of wheat is grown outside the triangle as well.
