Cowboy up! There’s no place like Montana’s Yellowstone Country for an authentic western experience. Guest Ranches are a wonderful way to relax and vacation amid miles of mountains and wide open prairies; day trips are a great way to explore and, for the adventurers, pack trips into the backcountry are available for any length of tour. For spectators, Memorial Day through Labor Day is rodeo season. Nine different towns throughout Yellowstone Country host cowboys and cowgirls from across the nation and Montana State University, located in Bozeman, is a perennial contender for national honors at the NCAA level. If you’ve never experienced the sport, it’s a boost of pure adrenaline.
