I spent a few days in Missoula in October 2001. At the time, it was an unusual experience for me. I remember hanging around the city and rediscovering my love for bicycling. My cousin was studying at University of Montana at the time, so it was a convenient excuse for a trip out there. One day we drove to Spokane and stopped in Coeur d’Alene, on the way. I remember the excitement of seeing 2 states i never thought I would see. I would not include WA in that list since Seattle (a must see for any music fan) is there, but Spokane is far from there.
