Montana - Water Bodies

Imagine a world in which you are driving through a vast and colorful nature of a state, you look out of the window, and you see only fields and forests. While it depends on the situation, in general, this sounds pretty dull, right? Thankfully, the wonderful Montana DLC and its environment will offer plenty of variety due to the water bodies, such as rivers, lakes, and dams.

There are two noteworthy rivers featured in the upcoming map expansion - the Yellowstone River (approximately 692 miles/1,114 km long) and the Missouri River (about 2,341 miles/3,767 km long). While the latter is actually the longest river in the whole US, both of these examples flow through quite a number of locations that you will be able to drive through, whether they be some of the cities, or simply in the open environment.

Other water areas that you will be able to pass by are lakes. And trust us, the Flathead Lake, located in north-west Montana, is unlike any other. After all, how often do you hear about a lake covering 197 square miles (510 square km), that has a monster living in its waters?! Indeed, the so-called "Flessie", inspired by Loch Ness "Nessie", is a mythical creature that is supposed to be dwelling in the depths of this lake according to Native American legends and local stories. Well, at least our relaxing truck simulator has zero chance of giving you a serious scare in the form of a beast, or does it?

One more major reservoir to mention is the Fort Peck Lake, which is the fifth largest artificial lake in the US, and it is formed by Fort Peck Dam and the already mentioned Missouri River. The dam actually has quite a popular spillway, which is used as an "overflow" during high water levels. 

And finally, the Lake McDonald (fast food meal not guaranteed), is the largest lake in the Glacier National Park, and it is hardly a surprise the adjacent nature presents a wonderful view for anyone who visits this area. Would you pay this national park a visit if you had the chance?

We hope you will be able to keep your head above water while driving past all these marvelous places in the upcoming Montana DLC for American Truck Simulator.
