The cowgirl in the $1,695 vest

Goop, the Gwyneth Paltrow-created and -curated online "lifestyle publication," came to western Montana and got its/their/her "cowgirl on."

According to Goop's write-up, getting one's "cowgirl on" means staying at Paw's Up ("a theme park set against some truly majestic country"), taking selfies on a four-wheeler, heading up to Many Glacier for a night ("the towels are more like washcloths and you won’t find fancy shampoo in the shower") and wearing a $1,695 Greg Lauren black puffy tent vest. The post also highlights the Ranch at Rock Creek ("if your kid falls in love with a particular horse, he can ride that horse everyday"), the Belton Chalet in West Glacier ("formal in Montana is still super casual"), and Glacier's Red Bus Tours, among other local attractions and recreational opportunities.

While the Goop lifestyle isn't quite in our price range, it doesn't have to be. As the site says:

There are few spots in America where the landscape can actually move you—reminding you not only of your relative insignificance, but of how mighty and ancient the earth really is. Glacier is one of those places. Whether you get out and hike, check into one of the Alpen-themed park lodges, or just drive the Going to the Sun Road (which you might recognize from the beginning credits of The Shining), this is absolutely one of those places you need to see before you die.

Fortunately, you can see it for just the $25 summer entrance fee. No vest required.
