Montana means mountain and it has some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the United States. It's no wonder nurses love Montana! Both Yellowstone and Glacier National Park are in Montana and numerous natural state parks such as Wild Horse Island and the badlands of Makoshika State Park. Montana has lots for you to do in the middle of all that beauty. In the winter there are great resorts, like Big Sky, for skiing, snowboards and tubing. In the summer there is hiking, climbing, and even extreme sports like skydiving.
Glacier National Park stretches across the Canadian border to become Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada forming the world's first International Peace Park. Glacier has deep azure lakes, some covered in icebergs in the summer, tall rugged peaks outlined with deep frozen glaciers. One of the best experiences of any national park is a drive on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. This incredible 52-mile drive takes you through the most incredible scenery in the park and over the Continental Divide.
Yellowstone was the first national park and it is still one of the most spectacular. People are drawn to Yellowstone to see the amazing thermal features, rich array of wildlife and the lower Yellowstone falls dropping into the Yellowstone canyon. Geysers that shoot water hundreds of feet into the air and rainbow-colored hot springs where life lives at close to boiling are found in only a few places on earth. Wild grizzly bears, wolves, buffalo and many other animals can be seen roaming freely around the park as they did hundreds of years ago. Yellowstone is a hikers dream and there are places in Yellowstone where you can hike all day and not see another human.
Montana is the ultimate place for LPN that love mountains to be!
