Quicksand. It can be some scary stuff if you’re ever stuck in it, and it is not region-specific, either. It can be found just about anywhere in the world–including Montana. Here are a few facts on quicksand you may not know:
- Quicksand is more likely to be found on beaches, riverbanks, marshes, lake shorelines or close to underground springs.
- On the top surface, everything typically looks normal. (yikes!)
- It’s true that struggling in quicksand – or just about any quick movement – causes you to sink more. Slow movements are much more effective.
- Quicksand is much more common than you might think – but most quicksand is only a few inches deep.
