Travels with Charley

The next passage in my journey is a love affair. I am in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, but with Montana it is love and its difficult to analyze love when you're in it. [...] Montana has a spell on me. It is grandeur and warmth. If Montana had a seacoast, or if I could live away from the sea, I would instantly move there and petition for admission. Of all the states it is my favorite and my love.
