LPN Jobs in MT

Montana is a vast state with an area larger than any other place in the United States, except for Alaska and Texas. It has 97 counties and one independent city (Billings).

The boundary between Montana and Wyoming is all of the Continental Divide east of the summit of Granite Peak 100 miles (160 km) north-northeast of Wisdom.

The continental divide continues east and south from the summit along the top of the Big Belt Mountains, then along with the present range of the Little Belts and continuing on to Loma, Montana in Fergus County where it turns east and roughly follows the 40 degrees parallel past Lewistown, Missouri Valley, and Jordan before veering southeast to Yellowstone National Park.
From there it continues south from the southern end of the range into Grand Teton National Park, then along the Teton Range and across Jackson Lake into Wyoming where it is roughly visible from Togwotee Pass to the southeast corner of Yellowstone.
The continental divide forms much of Montana’s eastern boundary with South Dakota and North Dakota. The continental divide heads east from the Big Blackfoot Mountains then follow the southern border of Glacier National Park and continue across northern Montana to Alberta in Canada.

East of the divide there are a few mountain ranges by the name of mountains but none that have a considerable enough height or prominence to be called a true mountain range. However, most of these by names such as (the Highwood Mountains, the Castle Mountains, and the Sweet Grass Hills) are often larger than many actual mountain ranges.
The Long Fork of the Kootenai River gets its start in British Columbia and flows into Montana where it becomes a major tributary to the Kootenai River and then north and east into the state of Idaho.

The Missouri River is formed at Three Forks (the confluence of the Jefferson, Madison, and Gallatin rivers) along the boundary with Gallatin County where it quickly enters Montana passing through Fort Benton, then heads east to Great Falls, then southeast to Billings where it veers due south. The river then meanders south to the border with North Dakota where it forms much of that state’s eastern boundary down to Lake Sakakawea.
