Maiden Missoula Review: The Naked Missoula Calendar


Photos by Austin Smith

It’s no secret that I have harbored a crush on local musician Travis Yost for the better part of a decade.

Unfortunately, with my being all “married” and “a mom” and “slightly neurotic,” he’s made it very clear that we are in the “friend” zone. Whatevs.

But I finally got to see him naked! I know! Jealous? You should be!

Then you should know that you too can have a glossy photo of T-Yo wearing nothing but a drum kit hanging on your wall.

This Christmas get everyone you know (who supports healthy sexuality and has a good sense of humor) a copy of the fabulous, slightly scandalous, all for a great cause “Missoula: The Way Nature Intended” calendar.

For just $16.99 at the MSO Hub downtown you can pick up as many copies of this gem as you’d like! And all the proceeds go to support the crucial services provided by Western Montana’s Open Aid Alliance.

Twelve months of bums, tattoos, strategically placed produce, and some great smiles from some of our favorite local celebrities (be assured I am not featured in this, however local beauty Caroline Keys bares it all in a kale patch, she should just do us all a favor and walk around naked every day, she’s gorgeous!)

Skiing, biking, at the beauty shop, gardening, even hunting… photographer Youa Vang caught each moment perfectly! So shop local, support a great cause, and spread some smiles this holiday season.

Merry Christmas from the Maiden!
