Learning About the U.S. State of Montana

Montana is known for its vast size, a sky that seems to stretch to forever, and rolling plains. Huge herds of cattle graze on the prairies. Montana has buffalo, too, and in the National Bison Range, on the Flathead Reservation, buffalo roam a 20,000-acre national wildlife refuge. The first white explorers to the area were from the Lewis and Clark Expedition. It joined the United States in 1889 as the 41st state.

The state name Montana comes from a Spanish word that means “mountainous”. In the western part of Montana, you’ll find the rugged Rocky Mountains. The state has two lovely national parks Glacier National Park with majestic peaks shaped by massive glacial ice and Yellowstone National Park with incredible scenery, waterfalls, geysers, and lakes.
