Seclusion and Scenery to Spare

This sparse Western land is the fourth-largest state by area but ranks 44th in population. That means lots of open spaces and scenic spots, namely Yellowstone and Glacier national parks. If there’s an outdoor adventure you can think of, Montana has it: camping, fishing, white-water rafting, hiking, skiing, horseback riding, rock climbing, even dogsledding.
