Makoshika State Park is the largest of Montana’s state parks at more than 11,000 acres.  The park contains spectacular badlands which conceal dinosaur fossils.  The park contains rock from the Hell Creek Formation and dinosaurs such as Triceratops.  Turkey vultures, prairie falcons and eagles make their homes here.  There is a visitor center with a small museum on the geology and local fossils.  (Source: Wikipedia, Image: Kelicia Samuelson)
