Team North is saddling up for a long ride today! They're headed into the Bob Marshall wilderness, one of the most celebrated wild areas in America. The "Bob," as it's affectionately called, is named for the visionary man who founded the Wilderness Society along with Aldo Leopold.

The Flathead National Forest covers about 2.3 million acres and is included in one of the largest intact ecosystems in the lower 48. Habitat for grizzly bears, wolverines, moose, elk, bighorn sheep, and bald eagles is preserved in its pristine state in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, the Great Bear Wilderness, the Scapegoat Wilderness, and the Mission Mountains Wilderness. The Flathead is known for its spectacular high rock walls, mountain lakes, and waterfalls.
