3 Great Escapes

Parks & Rec:

1. Hell Creek State Park near Jordan feels like heaven for anglers, campers and boaters. It's set on the Hell Creek Arm of Fort Peck Lake. 

2. For wildlife watchers, it's game on at Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge, about 60 miles southwest of Glasgow. Spot bugling elk, mule deer, red foxes and coyotes. 

3. Revel in solitude. The Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument in Lewistown is a haven anchored by the 149-mile Upper Missouri National Wild and Scenic River. 


Dino-Namic Duo

Peck's Rex, a life-size model of a Tyrannosaurus rex found nearby, greets you inside Fort Peck Interpretive Center and Museum in Fort Peck. At Great Plains Dinosaur Museum and Field Station in Malta, spy rare fossils of hulking dinosaurs, delicate plants and ancient sea creatures.
