Missoula is a place to recreate, to get outdoors and have fun. I imagine that this will be one of the biggest subdirectories for Missoula. The nature section houses links to information on the mountains, the outfitter section will list river, fishing, hiking and other professional guides. The sports section will bring you to team web sites, and sporting goods list places to shop.
