thus paradise. Carbon and southern Rosebud counties are in the heart of
the Mountain Band of Crow Indians, while Garfield was in historic River
Band territory. Carbon and southern Rosebud have much milder Winters
than Garfield (which is in what we call "The Big Open"). They also get
lots of Chinooks in the Winter. Southern Rosebud has very cheap land
as it is totally undiscovered by tourists and Californians trying to re-locate.
It is mesa country that is covered with lodge pole pines (11-13" of
precipitation a year).

a home for those working and commuting to Billings (MT largest
city). Southern Carbon County has Montana's only desert (from
Bridger south). The Fromberg-Bridger-Belfry area has a micro
climate (much warmer in the Winter than would be expected).
However, Red Lodge, at over 6,000' elevation, has harsh Winters.
