A heard of Elk along Highway 200 by Mosby, MT #northeastmontana #missouririvercountry #moreroomtoroam #elk #hwy200 Next on @talkingtrail through Missouri River Country is Fort Peck Theatre. Built in 1934 to entertain the 50,000 Army Corps of Engineers workers and their families, the building is reminiscent of a Swiss-chalet.

Through archaeological excavations and careful research, the post's buildings have been reconstructed on the footprints of the original structures. Hear the full story about Fort Union, link in bio. Following along Talking Trail: Zortman, located near the Fort Belknap Reservation, was named after Oliver ‘Pete’ Zortman, who, alongside his partner, constructed a mill near the townsite to extract low-grade ore from rock. Mines were sprung up into the mountainsides shortly after. Today, the mining operation is undergoing a reclamation process — the town's residents are transforming into a quaint and nostalgic village.
