I'm on a three day trip with Missoula and Butte layovers right now. This morning in Missoula, the flight attendants and I "did the M." For those of you who haven't visited Montana, just about every town has inscribed their initials on a nearby mountainside. In Missoula's case, it was done by students and alumni of the University of Montana. A fairly easy switchbacked trail ascends the 700 feet to the M and continues beyond it for panoramic views of the valley.
Tonight I'm in Butte. We don't leave until 2 tomorrow, but I kinda doubt that I'm up for hiking Our Lady of the Rockies.
