Montana is a state diverse in its geography, culture, and history. From the history of mining and logging in the west, to the tales of the homestead era in the east, it is a land rich in stories of the past. From the western mountain ranges of the Rocky Mountains to the prairies and badlands of the east, it is a land of everchanging scenery. It's here that a culture of ranching and farming blends with a culture of arts and an urban small town lifestyle of it's cities and towns. Montana is huge in it's physical scale, almost 800 miles from the southeast corner to the northwest corner of the state; but small in population with less people in the entire state than are found in most U.S. urban areas with less than a million inhabitants spread across it's vast expanse. Recreation is year round here with a full range of winter activities, ski areas, snowmobile trails, and cross country ski trails, and provides endless opportunities for recreation in the warmer months with world class fishing, hiking and outdoor activities. Your Montana journey starts here.
