The backcountry of Montana has a terrain like nowhere else in the world. Its mountains fall into rolling ranch lands, which themselves are peppered with ice-blue glacier lakes. The state’s name is derived from the Spanish word for mountain, montaña, but it also boasts many unofficial nicknames such as “Big Sky Country,” “Land of the Shining Mountains,” and “The Treasure State.”
