Named after the Spanish for “mountainous country,” Montana contains numerous mountain ranges, many of which form part of the Rocky Mountains in the west of the state.

The major cities of Montana include Missoula to the east, Billings in the south and Great Falls. State capital Helena, Butte and Bozeman are also major population centers.

The coldest temperature ever recorded in the US was in Montana (-70ºF) and the valleys and mountains can attract fog that is difficult for even experienced Montana trucking companies to navigate.
