The shear diversity and beauty of the wildlife and landscape for a start. The spine of the Continental Divide runs from almost 60 miles within the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex which is made up of the Great Bear, Scapegoat and the Bob Marshall Wilderness areas. The “Lewis Overthrust” is a huge escarpment d called the Chinese wall which extends for over 20 miles, and provides breathtaking scenery. Elevations in the complex range from 4000 to just over 9000 feet in elevation.
The rivers and streams of the Bob are nothing les that spectacular. To the north are the Middle and South Forks of the Flathead River. To the east are the North, West and South Forks of the Sun River. On the southern end of the complex is the North Fork of the Blackfoot River. Smaller streams and tributaries feed these major drainages throughout the “Bob”. Native wild Bull Trout and Cutthroat trout, along with Rainbow Trout make this an angler’s paradise.
No surprise is the native wildlife that is still found in this critical habitat. The grizzly bear still roams the mountains here as they have for eons of time and shares the landscape with the wolf. The Canada Lynx and Bobcat make their home here as well. High in the mountains are the Big Horn Sheep and Mountain Goats along with the wolverine and Pika. Spread throughout the “Bob” is Whitetail and Mule Deer. Elk and Moose are abundant throughout the area. Many forest carnivores such as Fisher, Marten and Weasels live in the timbered mountain slopes. The birds of the “Bob” to name a few include Eagles, falcons, hawks and owls. Grouse, woodpeckers, Steller’s Jays, Clark’s Nutcrackers, nuthatches, chickadees and many more can also be observed.
But what is the best of all is the big beautiful sky and the awesome starry nights. You really want to see all of this!
