    BIG sky country

    It never ceases to amaze me just how big distances get when you hit the western states, as opposed to the Midwest. I live in far western North Dakota, and I’m still ~630 miles from St. Ignatius and Rexford. I’d still love to visit one day, but it won’t be an impulse trip on a weekend. 🙂

    • Good point Emily. I’ve never lived there, but from my limited visits West (really one main visit), everything scales up. 630 miles is like over 1.5 times the distance it takes me to go from NC to Lancaster County, going through several states and passing by several other Amish communities on the way 🙂

    Wonderful store

    We go to this store quite a bit in the summer. Everyone is so friendly! There is a wonderful selection of different items. They added a large produce room not too long ago. We love getting potatoes there – $9.99 for a 50 lb bag. And the potatoes are huge! The Mission Mountains are the perfect beautiful backdrop. If you ever get the opportunity to visit, you will not regret it.

    DIVINE Providence moves west!

    Even though the revolving door might be a factor in the Amish presence its always a delight to meet the new families with their hopes & dreams. 😉 Very nice article indeed. 😉

    Mission General Store

    This is definitely my type of store!!! It’s just a good thing I live so far away from it. Just thinking about it makes me drool!!! Food, baked goods, quilting material…oh my! Thanks for the article, Erik.

    • My pleasure Harriet. Yes I would love to have a place like this next door. Though usually I find that the things in our backyard we tend to take for granted, since we can visit them anytime in theory…I’ve noticed this anyway as far as local attractions where I live, which I hardly ever visit. For a similar reason I am kind of glad I didn’t grow up next to an Amish community 🙂

    St. Ignatius, Montana

    Ironically, I had planned to go to St. Ignatius, Montana this July for a horsemanship clinic put on by Doug “Doc” Hammill & his wife, Cathy. I had also planned to go to Clare, Michigan the last weekend of June.

    However, I have decided to retire effective July 2nd, and have a bunch of things that are up in the air and which will need to be settled about that time. So I won’t be making either this year. (Insert “sad” smiley face here!)

    For those that might be interested in either;

      Ooops! Forgot something

      In the post above I gave the URL for an event in Clare, Michigan this June, but failed to mention what the event is! Past my bedtime I guess.

      It is Horse Progress Days 2018, or, as I like to call it; The Amish World’s Fair. Quite an event to see. If you are going to be in that part of Michigan on the 29th or 30th of June I highly recommend that you stop by and take it all in.
