At some point after I’m gone, someone will say: “Overall he was a fairly decent sort, but he just couldn’t stay away from the Larch”.

The scenes in these photos are between the North Siegel Creek and South Siegel Creek roadless areas and southwest of the Reservation Divide roadless area in the Coeur d’Alene Mountains of western Montana. The first photo actually shows part of the South Siegel area.

Water from this watershed flows into the Clark Fork of the Columbia River, and despite the fact that it looks like a vast area, the streams whose headwaters are within it are small. It takes huge tracts of wild country to produce the precious water we need for survival.
