Nature of Montana

The state of Montana is located in the Western United States and belongs to the mountainous states of the United States. Territory of the state – 381,156 km 2, Montana ranks fourth in terms of area among the US states (after Alaska, Texas and California) and is the largest landlocked state.

Montana borders the states of North Dakota to the east, South Dakota to the southeast, Wyoming to the south, and Idaho to the southwest and west. To the north, Montana borders Canada.

According to the features of the relief, the state of Montana can be divided into two large areas: mountains in the west of the state and plains in the east.

Almost all of western Montana is occupied by mountains; it is not for nothing that the state gets its name from the Spanish montana (“mountain”). These are the numerous ranges of the northern part of the Rocky Mountains: the Bitterroot, Lewis, Anaconda and many others. Montana’s highest point, Granite Peak (3,904 meters above sea level), is located in the south of the state in the Beartooth Mountains.

The mountains of Montana are mostly covered with coniferous forests (one of the symbols of Montana is the Oregon pine), here you can see grizzly bears, elk, elk deer and many other animals.

Between the mountain ranges of Montana, there are many fertile and picturesque plains, such as Paradise Valley (“Paradise Valley”) in the southwest of the state.

Almost two-thirds of Montana’s territory, its entire eastern part, is the vast prairies of the Great Plains. Numerous areas of “badlands”, “bad lands”, arid and ravine-cut regions with clay soils are also located here. Rocky outcrops are also found on the plains, the most famous and picturesque of which are the “Missouri cliffs” in the central part of Montana, which have the status of a national monument and are protected by the US government.

Rivers flow through the territory of Montana, belonging to three basins – the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans. The crossing point of the watersheds is Triple Divide Peak in the north of the state. Montana is sometimes referred to as the “original state” because it is here that the headwaters of the Missouri (the longest tributary of the Mississippi) and the Columbia (the largest river in the northwestern United States) are located. There are many lakes in Montana, the largest of which (and the largest in the Western United States) is Flathead Lake.
