If we look up, big sky country is there day or night. The northern lights dazzle and dance at night and during the day, an azure blue paints the dome above us. But, it’s also the Yellowstone region of the states known for the big sky, its geysers, hot springs, mountain views and the most entrances into the park.

Travel east and back in time to the June of 1876 and the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Visit Custer National Cemetery; learn about the people who joined in the battle that day.

It’s easy to become distracted in Montana. The breathtaking mountain views alone can make one forget why they left the room. Glacier National Park, for example, is a treasure worth seeing. Called the Crown of the Continent, one of its greatest natural resources is a dark night sky.

One thing is for sure when it comes to Montana is its people. Whether you’re seeking dinosaurs, the history of Blackfeet or Nez Pierce, a real working ranch, the people of Montana are as genuine as the land they live on.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Celebrate the 41st state to join the union. Explore the history and people of Montana. Follow the trails of the pioneers and visit all the treasures this great has to offer.
