Photographer's Note

While many small schools in Montana have been abandoned, many small churches remain. This church looks insignificant and lonely in this big country. There are many graves behind this church attesting to many years of use. I supposed there was once a town in this area too, but I saw no signs other than this church.

I read that a frontier is defined by having a population of less than 6 people per square mile. Some areas of Montana contain less than 1 person per square mile, which I guess makes it close to a wilderness, except that much land is used for wheat farming and cattle grazing. There is one thing for sure, you don't want to wander these roads unprepared, as a minor problem could result in a long walk for help.
