Minnesota might have the nickname the “The Land of 10,000 Lakes,” but it's not like Montana is a dry desert.
In fact, Montana is home to some pretty impressive lakes, and some that can be found at the top of few lists as well.
That's according to the website Flathead Watershed Sourcebook.
In doing research for this article I found out that Glacier National Park is home to 762 lakes, and only 131 of them have names.
This is my official petition to get one of them named "Nick Northern Lake."
