Montana is rugged country, but the rewards for those who venture here are as vast as the mountains that dominate its awe-inspiring landscape. Montana is home to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. Its high plains, badlands and buttes cover vast stretches of land with natural beauty. One of the last true wild spaces in America, Montana is home to pristine environments where antelope and mule deer share space with the last remaining herd of elk. At C.M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge, these majestic beasts roam lands that humans have long since abandoned, as evidenced by the crumbling remnants of empty homesteads from centuries past, paths rutted by wagon wheels and telltale teepee rings. Seven Indian Nations remain in Montana, including the Blackfeet, Crow and Northern Cheyenne tribes. Powwows across the state welcome the respectful visitor to observe and take part in these joyous cultural events. Accommodations in Montana range from rustic hunting lodges to luxurious hotels. The Montana Area Health Education Center Program Office in Bozeman helps guide those seeking to pursue health professions in Montana, with an emphasis on helping underserved areas of the state.
