Take a deep breath when you visit Montana, because the altitude about half the state is more than 5,000 feet, with mountain ranges that reach more than 2 miles into the air. Also, take your tackle box, because Mobil Travel Guide tells you where to find the best fishing. You'll also find a section devoted to Glacier National Park. In North Dakota, visit Fargo, the largest city in the state, and the tiny Kenmare where the Des Lacs National Wildlife Refuge has excellent bird-watching. South Dakota's Black Hills are a must-see, including the Crazy Horse Memorial. Follow the guide's drive through the Old Oregon Trail in Wyoming, then take a ride into Cheyenne, where you'll see a well preseved frontier town. In Mobil Travel Guide's Northern Plains guidebook, you'll also find descriptions of four of the country's distinctive American Byways™: Beartooth Highway, Sheyenne river Valley Scenic Byway, Native American Scenic Byway, and Peter Norbeck Scenic Byway.
