Glacier National Park


Reynolds Mountain, Glacier National Park, photographed in June 2012, by Dr. Junhaku Miyamoto

The state of Montana contains numerous mountain ranges of the Rocky Mountains. This
geographical fact is reflected in the state's name, derived from the Spanish word mountain.
A population density is the third lowest in the United States. Millions of tourists annually
visit Glacier National Park. Three of the five entrances to Yellowstone National Park is
located within the state boundary of Montana.

モンタナ州は米国北西部に位置し、北はカナダ国境と接する。非常に魅力的な (Glacier National Park )
グレイシャー国立公園はモンタナ州にある。州人口は100万人に満たない。広大な地域で人口密度は
2.4/km。西にロッキー山脈を抱き、東の台地は大平原へと広がる。

筆者は1962年7月に自分の車でグレイシャー国立公園(氷河国立公園)を訪れている。実に壮大な景観で
ある。とりわけ、セントマリー湖(St Mary Lake) から Going-to-the-Sun Road を上って行く道には
次々と山々が出現し、小さなトンネルを越えたところに迫り来るMount Reynoldsの雄姿には感嘆の声
すら出ない。小休止していたらかわいい、大きなモルモットがやってきて車の下に居座ってしまった。
エンジンの下は暖かく心地よいのだろう。Weeping wall と呼ばれている滝が道路上にそのまま落下して
いる。観光客のほとんど見当たらなかった時代だから出来たのだろう、落下する滝の下に自分の車を
止めて車体一杯に山の水を浴びて楽しんだ。


Montana, which has served as Marlboro Country in advertisements, banned smoking in all public
buildings.


A depicting rugged cowboy puffing on cigarettes while riding a fence line, is about to outlaw smoking
just about everywhere but the great outdoors. The state-wide ban will apply to nearly all enclosed
places open to the public, including restaurants, stores, office buildings, schools and public trans-
portation, starting October 2005. The law exempted 1,700 bars until September of 2009.

Few smoking violations reported to the State Officials.
To comply with the ordinance to prohibit smoking in a public place, the sole exception, which was
applied to a bar and casino was expired, and Montana became the smoke-free state. The only thing
failed to include in the ordinance would be the smoking restriction in the area around the entrance
and windows
of the buildings.

According to the state health officials, only a few cases violating the state ban during the one week
period after the strict smoking ban came into effect to bars and casinos. Businesses that violate the
ban receive an educational letter after a first offense. A second offense brings a warning, while third,
fourth and fifth offenses result in penalty of $100, $200 and $500 fines, respectively.

About 16 percent of Montanans are smokers, compared with 20 percent of Americans overall.
The Quit Line offers free counseling and nicotine replacement products. It is so predicted that the
Quit Line might get busier as the weather turns colder and smokers no longer want to stand
outside. The Montana winter will help a man to quit smoking.
