"Trail Signs" Along the PNT: The Yaak - Of Indians and Modern Mountain Men

In the far northwest corner of Montana the PNT enters a very narrow valley only a mile or two wide. Four miles from the Canadian border and 15 miles east of the Idaho Panhandle – this northwest region in Montana is known as the Yaak Valley.
Tim Youngbluth sometimes thinks he was born about 200 years too late.  He enjoys researching stories about the Pacific Northwest Trail because they add color and flavor to his own … http://pnt.org/blog/trail-signs-along-pnt-yaak-indians-and-modern-mountain-men/

Explorer and fur trader David Thompson sat on the hard rock face cliff gazing down one more time into the turbulent river below. Something was wrong. All his calculations showed that the Columbia River must be near here, but the river he had been follow…

"Trail Signs" Along the PNT-Hughes Meadow

Tucked inside a small valley, just east of the Washington-Idaho border on the PNT, northwest of Priest Lake, lies Hughes Meadow. Today it stands as treeless, boggy marsh with chest-deep grass. The stream running through the meadow is filled with beaver…
