Why do you travel? Is it for food, drink, or the combination of both, culture. I have written extensively about the best places in the world for pho, a list I have neglected to finish.
Montana may not be the best place in the world for pho but it does get the ranking of #1 in the world for Ranch.
Ranch is everywhere here. It’s a standard item next to the salt and pepper at the dinner table, on the bar rail next to the Tequila, and in the gas station that serves to go drinks.
It is an oddity to see so much Ranch in so many places especially since half the world has never heard of this indispensable condiment. But I love it on my pizza, on my wings, and even as a satisfying drink.
None of the locals have told me the reason why Ranch is so prevalent nor do I know how Ranch relates to travel and points besides to say the real hidden valley is here in Montana and it’s worth taking a dip.
