43 / Chief Joseph Pass

Chief Joseph Pass el. 7,251 feet (2,210 m) is a mountain pass on the continental divide of the Rocky Mountains. It separates Idaho frpm Montana. The pass is in the Bitterroot Mountains and is traversed by Montana State Highway 43. The pass is
named after Chief Joseph of the Wallowa band of the Nez Perce tribe who traversed the pass in 1877 during the Nez Perce War. This is the northernmost pass on the continental divide between Idaho and Montana. In early September 1805, the Lewis and Clark Expedition either crossed this pass or the nearby Lost Trail Pass as they traveled westward into the Bitterroot Valley of present-day Ravalli County. The Lost Trail Powder Mountain ski area is about 1-mile (1.6 km) west, at Lost Trail Pass on US-93.
