This Gallery is all about
the best Known Montana Parks including Glacier National Park is 1,000,000
acres - the most northern US part of the North American
Rocky Mountains that stretch from Canada to Mexico.
On the west side of the Rockies is the headwaters of the Colorado River; on the east side is the headwaters of the Mississippi River. This distinction is referred to as the "Continental Divide". Even desert plants can live here as they survive with little nutrition and sporatic moisture.
Yellowstone National Park - the first in the nation - is located in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. The Original Entrance is in Gardiner Montana...along the Yellowstone River in the Gallatin Valley. Ride past Emigrant Peak and then to the park where you appreciate the resurgence of contented Buffalo families.
Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument honors the site of the 1876 battle between US Army's 7th Cavalry and bands of Lakota Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapaho Indians.
The First and Best known State Park of Montana is the Lewis and Clark Caverns SP. It includes a well maintained limestone cave south of Helena and a number of hiking trails. Although it overlooks many miles of the Lewis & Clark trail, Lewis and Clark never saw the caverns.
