montana photograph Why I Love Montana
Look at those hands.
Seventy-nine-year-old Richard Kirchhevel isn’t wearing a cowboy hat, a fancy belt buckle or spurs. He’s just paid his bill at the Jersey Lilly in Ingomar, way out in the eastern plains of Montana. The Jersey Lilly has outhouses instead of bathrooms since it only recently got running water. It’s justifiably proud of the bowl of beans on the menu.
Mr. Kirchhevel is no actor in a costume.
The Jersey Lilly isn’t a movie set.
That’s why I love living and working in Montana.
