I think that we should head a little eastward into the alluring state of Montana! Montana’s nickname is known as the treasure state due to the rich mineral reserves. Another interesting fact that led to Montana’s nickname was the abundance of gold and silver obtained from mining in Montana.
There are a couple of interesting places to visit in Montana, even though it is vastly composed of vegetation, mountains, and mining reserves. Glacier National Park is found in this captivating state. The park consists of an abundance of wildlife and landscapes that will leave you breathless.
