Prairie Populist, a Montana-based online destination for stories, news, and information about the state, has just launched the first article in a summer-long series focused on our diverse system of state parks.
The first article is about Painted Rocks State Park at the southern end of the Bitterroot Valley in Western Montana. The article looks at the evolution of the park from a remote, isolated party venue to a family-friendly park with a variety of recreational opportunities.
Well worth a read and maybe enough to inspire a weekend camping trip to the far end of the West Fork of the Bitterroot River.
