Bitterroot Mountains

The Bitterroot Mountains are part of the Bitterroot Range, running north-south from I-90 to the Salmon River and making up much of the Idaho-Montana state line. The mountains abut the Clearwater and St. Joe Mountains, which make up the Bitterroot’s western boundary. To the east the Bitterroots are bordered by the Bitterroot River. The mountains are named after the Montana state flower, Lewisia rediviva.
