Montana is a big state, and you can really feel it when your try to drive from one corner of it to another. A year ago today, I drove for almost two days from South Dakota to reach Glacier National Park near the border with Canada.

On the way there were miles and miles of ranches, fields, or just open country. To prepare for the winter, ranchers and farmers had harvested hay and piled it as cylindrical or rectangular bales. Their cattle, horses, and sheep would feed on those bales throughout the winter. Never having seen so many hay bales, I had to stop several times to take the following pictures.
