My home is the North Fork of the Flathead. I have spent many nights staring up at the stars and northern lights, far from the lights of town.
I still enjoy seeing the faces of people who are visiting the North Fork for the first time. They always seem overjoyed to discover a place that is so wild, so natural and so beautiful in this day and age.
For years, the idea of a Canadian coal mine has loomed just upstream. It took decades of neighbor-to-neighbor diplomacy to convince the Canadians to back off this idea, for the sake of the Flathead River, Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake.
