Why not venture out to the high Sierra mountain in California? You have some wonderful pine trees, wilderness areas, and sprawling national forests down there as well. The scenery is just as stunning as Montana in many respects!

And sometimes better in some respects. You can't beat the smell of a redwood forest in the summer, boy I miss that...

Stay in California, I just moved to the Missoula area of Montana from Washington,and wish I had stayed. There are less trees, less scenary, and less beauty here than in California oregon or even Washington.

I thought the people here would be more respectful curtious and generally friendly after leaving the city, but it was the complete opposite people here are more rude than in a metro area such as seattle, portland, or the many in California.

And as for trees and wildlife/mountains there is more beauty in western Washington, northern California and Oregon then there is here short of the tiny fragment of mountains and trees in western montana,and what you can see of Idaho on the western sky scape.

They should divid the state, 1/4 of montana the western montana can still be called montana(mountains) and eastern, the majority of the state can be renamed llano(flat) in spanish because thats what it is flat almost deserty looking plains, if you ask me this state is a hell hole.

Cost of living is beginning to rival an oregon/eastern washington based housing market, and the job market/economy even with the troubled times in the U.S. or even the world rivals a third world country, stay away from montana. When you do find a job if your from out of state they won't give it to because they hate californians, washingtonians and any other who isn't from Montana, if you come here change your plates quick

Notar: I agree with you, Montana is very beautiful. I have lived here in Anchorage, Ak. for the last 27 years and still miss Mt. I am a motorcyclist and have riden just about every road in Mt. In doing so I have met the nicest most helpful people. I don't think you will regret it should you decide to move there.

Can I ask, if you could live where ever you choose, asuming your life would be the same in any other respect (job the same etc), would you rather live in MT or AK? Ignoring the financial aspect and focusing on quality of life/hapiness? You are one of the few I've seen who has the two to compare
