15 Photos That Will Make You Want to Book a Trip to Big Sky Country ASAP.

These days with Pinterest, Google, and endless forms of social media, it can feel like you’ve already seen and experienced a place before you even get there.  But every once in a while, you arrive at your destination and realize you have discovered a hidden gem.  Let me let you in on a secret: that’s Montana (and Wyoming and Idaho, for that matter – I am going to lump them together for purposes of this post).

Big Sky Country is breathtaking, untouched, and unlike anywhere else I’ve ever been.  The fact that it has a sort of stigma about it works in it’s favor.  Everyone I know was like, “why do you want to go to Montana for your birthday when you could go anywhere?!”  People have a negative idea of what Montana is and it deters them, which protects how special it really is.  If everyone only knew how incredible it is, they’d be flocking up north.

From the mountains to the endless streams and lakes, to the pine trees and alpine meadows, endless wildlife that walk across the street without a care (I’m talking deer, bears, even bison one foot from our car!), and the sweet little small town main streets, it’s an area of the country that has something for everyone.

The weather during our stay was divine, actually much warmer than I expected or packed for: sunny and 85 with nights cooling down to 70 and mornings in the 50s.  I already want to go back every Summer from now until they put me in the ground.  While I can’t speak for the Winters, I am sure if you are a ski/snowboard fanatic it would be divine, but as for myself I will stick to the warmer months.  I would love to go up at the beginning of Fall, I bet that is gorgeous!

  • That last photo is incredible! Sold. Adding to my list of bucket list destinations immediately.

    • Isn’t that photo so insane, I was calling it an infinity pool hahaha except that it’s like 200 degrees and if you touch it you’ll basically melt lolz. You should definitely try to make it happen, I am fairly certain that it’s impossible to visit and not fall in love with the beauty of the area!

  • Such beautiful photos! Looks amazing!

    • Thank you! I had very low expectations and was blown away by all the natural beauty everywhere we turned!

  • Wow! Even prettier than I remember it being. Your stunning pictures are reminding that I’m long overdue for a trip back to that area of the country.

    P.S. I have plenty of “popular” places on my travel list, but your post is a reminder as to why the hidden gems, or often overlooked places are really my favorite 🙂

    • Oh yes a trip back is definitely a must! And totally agree that the lesser known places always end up being my favorite too! There’s just something special about liking a place everyone isn’t already in love with.

  • You were right, now I want to go there!!

    • Haha glad the pics got the point across – mission accomplished! You really would love it!

  • Wow! This place is really fantastic! Your captures show that it is a great place to visit 😉

  • I definitely didn’t have a stigma about it, but I had no idea it was this beautiful! And what I love even more is that it isn’t a crazy popular destination like you said so you could totally go and still enjoy with a small town feel. Crazy amazing photos!

    Whoa! Montana is gorgeous! I am a huge nature lover, also American but have never really thought to visit Montana until I started researching national parks and discovered Glacier National Park! Hopefully someday! I would TOTALLY visit Montana now!!
