Think back to the late 19th Century, a time when the West was for the brave and wild-hearted, a place for adventurers. Sam Wilson was one of these classic westerners. He laid the foundation for what is now the 320 Guest Ranch in southern Montana in 1898 with his 160 acre homestead along the Gallatin River.
I knew when I first heard Nomadic Matt talking about Missoula, Montana during his book tour a year ago, it was a place I wanted to visit. I did a little research, started following the Visit Montana Instagram (warning: they post photos that will make you move to Montana), and was soon inspired for my own trip to Big Sky Country.
