Yaak, Montana

“The Yaak is a far, green, lovely, lonely reach of the Columbia River watershed.   Like portions of the Pacific Northwest closer to the ocean, many of its valley bottoms and lower slopes grow woodlands that naturally culminate in towering western red cedar and western hemlock interspersed with spruce, fir, cottonwood, alder and birch.  They are interior temperature rain forests.   The Yaak ecosystem is a rare and globally significant lode of biological wealth. ”
