Unlike some states where there is like one area that many go to (Jackson Hole, Sun Valley come to mind)

Montana has so many locations where people come for vacation or the have a vacation homes. Where do people go for a ranch surrounded by mountains?
The best prime area? Thank you and God Bless.

Please clarify. Are you looking to purchase a ranch surrounded by mountains in the best prime area? If that is true, for best it likely starts at ten million dollars.

This description matches a lot of the southwestern and western parts of the state. The two most popular tourist destinations are Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Are you looking for a dude ranch to stay in? I imagine there are some of those around those areas. Can you be a bit more specific?

I'm not looking to purchase anything. When you reread my question I never said I was looking to purchase anything.
I am looking for information.

Cooke City







Could you name any counties to help my search. Thanks.
Counties: Park, Gallatin, Sweetgrass, Golden Valley, Meagher, Lewis and Clark, Broadwater, Silver Bow, Jefferson, Madison, Beaverhead, Ravalli, Granite, Missoula, Mineral, Sanders, Lake, Flathead, Lincoln, Glacier, Pondera, Cascade, Fergus, Carbon, Musselshell and Carbon.

Take your pick.

Most of the pictures you have there look like they came from the Beartooth Highway in Carbon and Park counties.

Although that last one with the old hay shed could be in the SpringHill area north of Bozeman in Gallatin County.

Your heading says "what area would one move to". Which implies purchase or rent. Renting in rural Montana is not always an option.

Those photos show high country lakes where the snow would be extremely deep in the Winter making the areas inaccessible. The old barn photo is at a lower elevation similar to the Flint Creek area near Philipsburg, Granite County or the Rock Creek area near Red Lodge.

Any of the counties with mountains will have areas like these. Look at topo maps for elevations over 6,500'.

Obviously, you know nothing about Wyoming or Idaho.

Nothing against Montana; I've lived there, and her mountains are gorgeous, but it isn't called the InterMOUNTAIN West for nothing. Idaho is the most mountainous state in the lower 48, and Wyoming is full of mountains. Utah is mountainous. Every state that has the Rockies within it's boundaries has mountains aplenty.

And none can compare to the Canadian Rockies. Eastern B.C. has mountains everywhere. Bigger mountains that we have here.

Two of your pictures are from Glacier National Park. The first is from the Highline trail looking towards Logan Pass and Birdwoman Falls, the second is looking at Hidden Lake. The county closest to Glacier NP would be Flathead and Glacier but there are beautiful mountain views in most of the western part of the state.
