Cook City Exxon 1 by Susan © Steven SchluterIt seems that both range wars and pump wars are a thing of the past, at least in Cooke City, Montana. The local Sinclair gas station runs a web site, CCSinclair.com, where you can catch up on local events and the weather. When we checked it looked to be foggy, with swirls of snow in the wind: the daily picture & weather page featured pictures by Susan from the local Exxon gas station. They appear to be real friendly folks in Cooke City, with a true sense of community and getting along with the neighbors.

Cook City Exxon 2 by Susan © Steven SchluterThe Exxon station is for sale (asking $1.5 million, "financial information shared with qualified serious purchasers"), apply through MontanaLegacy.com. A mountain lodge, "in the heart of it all", will set you back $474,900. All this is probably just the thing for snow sports enthusiasts, who will doubtless appreciate the finer points of the various Ski-Doo pictures on the site. Walking out to enjoy the late evening sunshine of a pleasant spring day in the southern Utah desert… well, we decided we are happy just where we are!
