A garden of nothingness So wonderfully worthwhile to exit the highway and disengage yourself from your problems! Serenity awaits you i this lovely garden. Breathe deeply and soak in the good karma. more »
An oasis of peace in the middle of nowhere. My wife and I travel through Montana at least twice a year. We always stop here to meditate and rest, before our long drive back to Seattle.
