              Montana’s tourist
It's the world's First National Park as well as one of the
   largest. But Yellowstone National Park offers a variety
   of other firsts With over 10,000 thermal features you
   can watch for the very first time as steaming geysers
   erupt in all their glory Or at first light you can view
   bear, bison, elk and wolf—from a distance—as they
   cross over 3472 square miles of untouched
   landscape. The experiences are timeless. Just what
   you'd expect from a place where little has changed
   since it opened over 135 years ago.
              Tourist attraction #2
Glacier National Park, together with the Water Lakes National
   Park in Canada, form the world's first International Peace
   Park. But in this rugged section of the northern Rockies,
   exhilaration is the universal language. Mountain goats cling to
   craggy, glacier carved peaks. Pie is served fresh daily in a small
   town. And drivers watch the scenery unfold beyond their
   knuckles as they drive along a road that defies words
                  History
Native Americans have inhabited this land for
 thousands of years, 200 years ago Lewis and
 Clark traversed what would one day be
 known
 as Montana.
