I live in the western part of the United States, and really not too far from Montana (I live in Utah). But Montana has always been on my bucket list. When they say that Montana is “BIG SKY COUNTRY”, what does that really mean?

Montana is a state with abundant wide-open spaces and skies that stretch uninterrupted to the horizon, which is why it is called “Big Sky Country” It is also known as “The Treasure State” for its natural resources and tourism. Montana has diverse landscapes, from desert and prairie to mountains and forests, and offers many outdoor activities, such as skiing, fishing, hiking, and ranching. Big Sky is also the name of a popular ski resort town in Southwest Montana, with the largest skiable terrain and vertical drop in the country.

With that information, have you ever been in a place that can claim that kind of landscaping? For photographers, this place could be a gold mine. Let’s take a look at some of the beautiful scenery taken by photographers that have been there:

Just a note on this above photo: have you ever seen a stream, a river or lake that is this clear? With that, this photographer (Ethan Wiese) saw that, and captured that unique beauty of this stream. When you are out in the mountains, the scenic part of wherever you are make sure you capture those things that are unique to this area. A photo like this is something that is amazing, and beautiful. Look for those things as you photograph.

“Location facts”

Montana is the fourth largest state in the United States, but has the third lowest population density. It has two national parks, Glacier and Yellowstone, and 55 state parks. It is the only state to border three regions of Canada and to have a Spanish motto, Oro y Plata, meaning gold and silver. It has a rich mining history and is known as the “Treasure State”, the “Big Sky Country”, and the “Land of Shining Mountains”. It is home to the most number of golden eagles and the state animal, the grizzly bear, in the United States.

Location fact:

The land has an average of 7.4 people per square mile. Only Alaska and Wyoming have fewer people per square mile than Montana. The national average is 75 people per square mile. The state with the densest population is New Jersey, which has an average of 7,354 people per square mile.

Montana has a large population of grizzly bears. This is probably why the grizzly bear is the state animal of Montana. An estimated 1800 grizzly bears are thought to be alive today.
