Montana is a word derived from the Latin expression meaning “mountainous.” The rugged Continental Divide zigzags across western Montana from the jagged peaks of Glacier Park to the ancient Beartooth plateau. In all there are 77 mountain ranges in Montana. The potential for hiking and backpacking in Big Sky Country is endless and inviting. And don’t forget; when you’re in the backcounty, it pays to be prepared if you get into an unexpected situation.
See you on the trail.
