It's called Big Sky. Yet you're still amazed by how big it is. You enjoy miles of scenic roads and the sound of your wheels spinning. You ride and talk. You ride and don't talk. You're awestruck by a waterfall's force. You question why you don't live closer to the mountains. You're in two magnificent national parks. And you'll never be the same.
