Big Sky Country, The Treasure State, Land of the Shining Mountains, The Last Best Place: However you to call to mind the U.S. state of Montana, it’s an untamed, wild and natural place. It boasts craggy mountains, rugged badlands, stunning glaciers, crystal clear lakes, and wide open spaces. It claims the greatest variety of wildlife in the lower 48 states. It’s one of the richest areas in the world for dinosaur fossils. It’s marked by legends of hidden treasures and road agents. It was first detailed by Lewis and Clark. It's the site of Custer’s Last Stand, one of the most famous battles in American history. It’s home to two national parks - Glacier and Yellowstone - and seven great Indian Nations - Assiniboine, Blackfeet, Crow, Gros Ventre, Kootenai, Salish, Sioux and Shoshoni. It has ghost towns, museums, mines and ranches. Adventure abounds in its great outdoors - fishing, camping, rafting, biking, hiking, downhill and cross-country skiing.
