Western Montana Lakes, rivers, mountains, valleys, hot springs and trees describe the western quarter of Montana. The greater Rocky Mountain Continental Divide runs from east of the rural town of Dillon, MT and goes north through Glacier National Park. Between craggy mountain ranges and lower foothills are spreads of lush fertile valleys and gentle, scenic ranchlands. Butte, the mining city, aka “Butte America” is reaped in mining history. Following I-90 to the northwest your next stop is Missoula along the Clark Fork River and home to University of Montana. In the northern region is Polson and Kalispell, the pristine Flathead Lake (Largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi), and then north to the Canadian border. Recreation centers around watersports on the numerous rivers and lakes, plentiful hunting & fishing and access to scenic public state and federal lands.
