There’s a band of rock that starts on one bank of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River west of Essex. It drops down underneath the current and rises up on the other side. Colter Pence says this is her favorite stretch of the Wild and Scenic River.

“It’s like you’re going underneath a rainbow,” Pence says, “an upside-down rainbow.”

Pence is a river and trails manager on the Flathead National Forest. She says further downstream, the colorful rocks in the riverbed sparkle underwater.
