Combining My Two Loves at Montana’s Bar W Guest Ranch

Sometimes, I’ve just got to give it to you straight.

Fact: I love a place that brings out my inner cowgirl.
Fact: I love cowboys. Always have, always will.
Fact: I love a place that combines my inner cowgirl with my love of cowboys.
Fact: The Bar W Guest Ranch combines those two loves and it may be one of the loveliest places in Montana.

Earlier this month, I headed to Bar W (located a few minutes west of Whitefish) with a group of friends who were visiting from literally all over the world. And together, we had one of the most memorable and fun days I’ve experienced in a long time.

Here’s a glimpse at our day…
