Montana Day: 11/8/2018, Celebrating 129 Years

When you here the word Montana you might think of Big Sky Country.  And, since I have visited there I can tell you, you are right, it is.

It's a beautiful state with some interesting characteristics.

Did you know . . .

Montana has several nicknames, not just "Big Sky Country" but also "The Treasure State," "Land of the Shinning Mountains" and also "The Last Best Place."

It is the fourth largest state behind, Alaska, Texas and California.  However, it is the eighth least populated state with just over 1,000,000 people spread out over a vast land.  This makes it the third least desist state as far as population.

Interestingly enough it is a swing state, It's had a history of Democratic Senators and governors, but since the 90s has voted red in each Presidential election.  The last time it turned blue on the big board was in 1992 for President Bill Clinton.

Today Thursday, November 8, 2018 is it's 129th birthday as it was admitted to the union on this day in 1889.
