Where in the World #257

Hopefully this one won't be quite as easy as my previous one ...
I'm looking for a town.

Ok I think I got everyone... No should be the answer to all of the questions asked. Brenda's was a bit tricky to answer, but the town is in fact not "east of the Rockies".

Okay, I can't tell now if you're saying the name of the town is not "East of the Rockies", or that the town itself is not located east of the Rockies. Sorry if the question was out of bounds, but you answered other questions about boundaries - I figured the mountain range itself could count as a boundary.

Could you please at least clarify which meaning you were using? Thanks.

Sound more like a disruption to me, if you were physical there, looking towards the Rockies. Just hope this didn't mix you up. For there is a place that has Rockies in its title.

Montana?
