The Ten Lakes Scenic Area is one of the jewels of the Kootenai National Forest. Straddling the Canadian border about halfway between Glacier National Park and the Purcell Mountains of the Yaak River Country, this 7000-acre parcel along with 33,000 acres of surrounding high country has been proposed for inclusion in the federal wilderness system. It should be. With over a dozen alpine lakes and eight peaks over 7000 feet, this high-country region remains relatively pristine in a national forest that has been intensively logged. This is prime grizzly habitat, with unbroken old-growth forests and sprawling alpine meadows.
