With four distinct seasons, northwest Montana welcomes travelers to soak up summer, fall, winter and spring. During long summer days, visitors can enjoy local fruit stands and take a dip in Flathead Lake, while fall beckons foliage chasers with scenic drives, cooler temperatures and a quieter look at this place.
