U is for Ursula aka Sula

Sula is a tiny little town up at the high (southern) end of the Bitterroot Valley. It is reputed to be the spot where the first white child was born in the area, a girl named Ursula Thompson, sometime around 1887. Back in the day when she was born it was known as Ross' Hole and is famous for being the spot where Lewis and Clark first met and talked with the Flatheads.

Today Sula is mostly a wide spot in the road, maybe a population of 10. I don't know if it ever was much more than that. Regardless of size it has a cool legend for its name though.
