Peaks and Legacies

Jesse A. Logan

Of the 496 summits greater than 9,000 ft. in Montana, 104 are located in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area. These summits form a vast wall, particularly for visitors traveling to Yellowstone National Park through Paradise Valley, or paralleling the Yellowstone River along I 90 from Livingston to Billings. Sometimes, dispirited by the increasingly urban-centric nature of American society, I wonder if anyone actually pays attention. And then, I read Sebring Davis’ essay and I gain hope through the realization that those who value Wilderness, and the high places within, go not alone.
