Interesting about Montana...

Montana has the largest migratory elk herd in the nation.

At the Rocky Mountain Front Eagle Migration Area west of Great Falls more golden eagles have been seen in a single day than anywhere else in the country.

The average square mile of land contains 1.4 elk, 1.4 pronghorn antelope, and 3.3 deer.

The Freezeout Lake Wildlife Management Area contains as many as 300,000 snow geese and 10,000 tundra swans during migration.
At Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge it is possible to see up to 1,700 nesting pelicans.

46 out of Montana’s 56 counties are considered “frontier counties” with an average population of 6 or fewer people per square mile.
Flathead Lake in northwest Montana contains over 200 square miles of water and 185 miles of shoreline. It is considered the largest natural freshwater lake in the west.

Yellowstone National Park in southern Montana and northern Wyoming was the first national park in the nation.
Virginia City was founded in 1863 and is considered to be the most complete original town of its kind in the United States.

The bitterroot is the official state flower.

The density of the state is six people per square mile.
The most visited place in Montana is Glacier National Park, known as the crown jewel of the continent. It lies along Montana’s northern border and adjoins Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada, forming the world’s first International Peace Park.
Glacier National Park has 250 lakes within its boundaries.
Montana is the only state with a triple divide allowing water to flow into the Pacific, Atlantic, and Hudson Bay. This phenomenon occurs at Triple Divide Peak in Glacier National Park.
Montana’s rivers and streams provide water for three oceans and three of the North American continent’s major river basins.
Montana’s name comes from the Spanish word mountain.

National Cream-Filled Donut Day on September 14th recognizes one of our favorite foods.
Cream-filled donuts come in so many varieties. If you aren’t a fan of fillings in your pastries, consider trying some of the latest flavors. Not only have bakeries become creative with their fillings, but they’ve also branched out with their toppings, too.
Some of the top cream-filled donuts we love (in no particular order) are:
  • Boston Cream
  • Bavarian Cream
  • Chocolate Cream
  • Lemon Cream
  • Custard
  • Caramel Cream
  • Strawberry Cream
  • Vanilla Cream
  • Peanut butter cream
  • Holland Cream
  • Fluffernutter Cream
  • Orange Vanilla Cream
  • Nutella Cream
  • Marshmallow Cream
  • Maple Cream
  • Espresso Cream
  • Coconut Cream
Now, if this list doesn’t make you run out and fill an order for at least a dozen, keep reading. And, there’s not a sprinkle to be found.
Add bacon crumbles to the maple cream. If you order an espresso cream, ask for a hazelnut drizzle. Of course, if you’re in an autumn frame of mind, sprinkle it with pumpkin spice and sugar. Orange vanilla cream makes an excellent dessert when topped with vanilla ice cream. Serve the caramel cream with coffee and cozy up with a good book. When it comes to the marshmallow cream, the obvious toppings are chocolate and graham cracker crumbs.
My favorite donut shop is Krispy Kreme. YUUUUMMMM!!!
