Sun River Pass in the Sawtooth Mountain Range

This jagged range in southeastern Montana is where the Sun River passes through the Rocky Mountains onto the plains. A long, chainsaw-ridged crest of peaks, dramatically fronted by flat-iron plates, it glows a striking array of vibrant colors from the multiple bands of exposed material thrust upward and weathered over time. Sun River was known to First Nations people as Medicine River and was a pathway for the Flathead, Pend d’Oreille, Kutenai, Nez Perce, and others from the west side of the mountains who passed here to hunt buffalo.
