TABLE FOR TWO: Romantic Getaways in Montana
A romantic getaway can mean different things to different people. Some couples' idea of romance has them being pampered from head to toe and indulging in all the creature comforts available to them. Others may prefer isolation and minimalism, like camping under the stars in a tent made for two. Out here in the Wild West, there's an element of romance in the history of the land and the nostalgia that exudes from it. No doubt if you're traveling through Montana...

Wild horses on Flathead Lake
The Kalispell office of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks delivers what visitors to Wild Horse Island expect to see—wild horses. “It’s important to preserve the island’s namesake,” says the division’s assistant park manager Dave Landstrom.
According to FWP, the Flathead Indian tribes used the island in the middle of Flathead Lake as a means to protect their horses from raiding bands of Blackfeet Indians. Later, a dude ranch and Arab-horse breeding business operated on the island; when the owners left and FWP gained control of the island, park officials discovered a horse and a mule.
Bear Gulch pictographs provide glimpse into Montana past
Twenty-five miles southeast of Lewistown, there’s a secret. At least, it was a secret until Ida and Macie Lundin began telling folks about it last year. Though their family has owned the ranch in the foothills of the Little Snowy Mountains since 1921, it wasn’t until last spring that the mother and daughter began offering tours of the Bear Gulch Pictograph Caves, which is located on their property. The ancient site boasts an unusually high number of cave drawings, about 2,000, on limestone cliffs.
