  • 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.

  • Half a mile off the highway. Definitely worth the stop and stroll! ***no dogs in the garden, just a consideration if you’re traveling with your best friend.
