Crown of the Continent

The Wildest Rockies

The Email of the Wild … Nope, Jack had it right: wilderness only calls.

Photographer Steven Gnam answered the call as a child of seven when his parents moved his citified family to the northwest corner of Montana and released him to explore the local environs: the 18-million-acre “crown of the continent” region where ice melt forms the headwaters to rivers reaching Hudson Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Pacific. Gnam’s playmates included grizzlies, wolves, mountain lions, and wolverines—the most diverse collection of carnivores in North America—and his skill in capturing this majestic place with a pen and a telephoto is surpassed by no one.
