I traveled across Montana’s continental divide from Clark Canyon Reservoir to the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake Rivers in Lewiston, Idaho. There lies 400 miles of hiking and kayaking that represents some of most challenging and scenic aspects of my cross-country experience. Below is a list of sections following that route from east to west.
- Clark Canyon Reservoir, across the Big Hole Valley, over Gibbons Pass and down to Conner, Montana at the headwaters of the Bitterroot River.
- Conner, Montana, down the Bitterroot River to Lolo, Montana.
- Lolo, Montana, west over Lolo Pass and down into Idaho and the headwaters of the Clearwater River at Kooskia, Idaho.
- Kooskia, Idaho down the Clearwater River to Lewiston, Idaho and the confluence with the Snake River on the western side.
