Montana Geography

Montana has a continental climate with hot summers and long, cold winters. It was in the mountains of Montana that the lowest temperature in the continental United States in the entire history of observations (-57 ° C) was recorded in 1954.

In western Montana, the climate is greatly influenced by warm air masses coming from the Pacific Ocean. There is more precipitation, milder winters. In the state capital, Helena, the average temperature in January is from -12°C to -1°C, and in July – from 11°C to 29°C.

The regions of Montana east of the Rocky Mountains are drier. The average temperature in January in the largest city of the state, Billings, is from -10°C to 3°C, and in July – from 13°C to 31°C.

In Montana, as in neighboring Wyoming, warm “Chinook” winds blowing from the slopes of the Rocky Mountains sometimes bring a sharp increase in temperature. In 1972, a case was recorded when the temperature in the Loma area rose by 57 degrees (from -48°C to 9°C) in a day!

In the north of Montana is one of the main tourist attractions of the state – Glacier National Park. The area of ​​the park is more than four thousand square meters. kilometers, on its territory you can see completely different biomes – from prairies to tundra. This is one of the most famous national parks in the United States, the ecosystem of the park has been preserved almost undisturbed since the first Europeans appeared here.

Glacier Park got its name due to the numerous glaciers located in the mountains in the park (glacier – glacier). In the middle of the 19th century, there were more than one hundred and fifty of them here, in our time, due to the warming of the climate, only thirty-five of them remain. It is believed that if the climate does not change, then in twenty years they will also melt.

Grizzly bears, wolverines, lynxes, cougars, bighorns, bighorn goats, white-tailed (virginsky) and black-tailed deer, elks, badgers, otters, porcupines, minks, martens live in the park – more than sixty species of mammals in total, as well as more than two hundred and fifty species birds (including the symbolic bird of the United States – the bald eagle) and more than twenty species of fish.

In the west of Montana, there is a wildlife sanctuary created back in 1908 to protect American bison. The number of bison in the United States declined sharply in the 19th century, when they were thoughtlessly exterminated by numerous hunters (among whom was the later famous Buffallo Bill). The Montana National Bison Sanctuary is relatively small, its territory is about 75 km2. The number of herds in the reserve reaches five hundred bison, you can also see bears, bighorns, and many species of birds here.

Partly on the territory of Montana (as well as in neighboring Idaho and Wyoming) is the famous Yellowstone National Park.

Another popular tourist attraction in Montana is Lewis and Clark Cave. Named after the famous explorers of the northwestern United States, the picturesque cave has the status of a state park.
