Western Montana is where the state’s name (from the Latin or Spanish word for “mountainous”) fits best: steep pitches and narrow north-south valleys line up from the Idaho border to Interstate 15.
These ranges of the Rocky Mountains are shot through with mineral veins, especially copper and silver. The Absaroka and Gallatin ranges are blanketed with volcanic rocks from eruptions in the area of Yellowstone National Park.
In the far northwestern part of the state, glaciers shrouded the mountains, leaving them relatively small and softly formed around U-shaped valleys.
The isolated ranges of central Montana, such as the Bear’s Paw and Big Snowy mountains, are not part of the Rockies. Many of them were formed when molten granite shot up from the depths of the earth and bowed up the overlying sedimentary formations.
Erosion and uplifts formed the prairie landscape of eastern Montana. Water, frost, and wind have cut gullies and gulches into the plains and sculpted benches or terraces along river valleys.
The northeastern Montana prairie is broad, flat, and underlain by gravel beds that hinder erosion. Glacial debris has enriched the soil, making this some of the state’s best agricultural land.
But south of the Missouri River, where glaciers never left such deposits, the land is desolate and vegetation-poor. In Montana’s badlands, soft bedrock just beneath the surface of bare ground is easily eroded. Pounded by rain, the soil develops a hard crust which exacerbates runoff and makes it difficult for any vegetation to take hold.
