If you head toward Martin Creek in the early evening, stay alert and you may be in for a special treat. About 5 miles east of Sula is Angle Draw, the year-round home to a large bighorn-sheep herd. Viewing these hills above the East Fork Bitterroot River is a delight as the setting sun hits the hillside just so, and the glowing light makes the sheep even more visible. You’ll find the BroadAxe Restaurant nearby. Initially, you might not be too impressed by the prospect of a restaurant in the middle of nowhere, but don’t make the mistake of passing it up. The BroadAxe serves hearty western fare, and every table comes with a pair of binoculars. These come in handy, since the expansive window-wall overlooks Angle Draw, and diners can watch sheep, deer, and elk and maybe glimpse an occasional bear. The landscape around you may seem familiar. This valley is the setting for Charlie Russell’s impressive 25- by-12-foot painting “Lewis and Clark Meeting Indians at Ross’ Hole” which hangs in the Montana State Capitol.
