Roundup, Montana

Roundup a town with a unique name is nestled in the valley near the Musselshell River near the Bull Mountains. It has long been renowned for its natural geographic design for rounding up livestock. It is still a place where old-fashioned values and ideals are present. Roundup was once a gathering point for large herds of cattle that grazed up and down the valley. One of the town’s highlights is the annual Roundup Cattle Drive. The drive is the western adventure of a lifetime. Besides being fun, the cattle drive is a real learning experience for participants who get a chance to find out exactly what farming and ranching operations are all about and why the delicate balance of the environment has always been so crucial here. The Musselshell Valley Historical Museum houses a coal tunnel, complete with wooden car, carbide lamps, lunch pails, maps, and photos. The exhibits tell the story of the birth of Roundup.

Other exhibits include fossils, local Indian artifacts, and paintings by local artists. Guided tours through the museum are actually living history lessons. The Bull Mountains, south of Roundup, offer beautiful roadside geology and pine trees. Companies, adhering to careful reclamation processes, mine coal in these mountains. North of town is oil wells, evidence of another rich mineral in the area. Also near Roundup are the C. M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge and the Lewis and Clark National Forest. Watch for deer, antelope, turkeys, and pheasants when you drive through the area. Sharp-eyed spotters will see elk grazing against the backdrop of the Bull Mountains. Deer are especially noticeable at dusk and dawn on the side roads. The Musselshell River, noted for its fine trout and catfish, also offers plentiful spots for relaxing picnics along its lazy banks. The oblong mussels, for which the river is named, can be collected as jewels of the Musselshell
