From most places in Helena, Montana, this rock formation can be seen and is aptly called the Sleeping Giant. The official name is “Beartooth Mountain,” a name which predates the the city of Helena. The "nose" is the bear's tooth, and what at distance appears to be a single formation forming the nose and lips is really a massive set of various rocks that are not interconnected. The distance gives it the optical illusion. The formation is more than 30 miles from Helena.
