Montana

THE TREASURE STATE

The mountains of Montana have yielded fortunes in gold and silver since the first substantial deposits were discovered in the mid 1800’s (Montana’s state motto is Oro y Plata – Spanish for “gold and silver “). Montana also has sapphires (the most valuable gemstone found in America). Montana is defined by its diverse terrain ranging from the Rocky Mountains to the Great Plains. Its wide-open spaces include Glacier National Park, a vast wilderness preserve that passes into Canada. The park’s many snow-capped peaks, lakes and alpine hiking trails are showcased along its famed Going-to-the-Sun Road, stretching 50 miles.
