Scotchman Peaks – Melissa Basin

20130901-_DSC0166
Melissa Basin sits high on the flanks of Melissa and Eleanor Peaks in the Compton Crags, a series of rugged spires in the heart of the Scotchman Peaks Proposed Wilderness Area named for a longtime northwest Montana family. I got to accompany two Comptons, Sandy Compton and Melissa Compton (of Melissa Basin fame herself) to this special area–one of the best spots in the Inland Northwest to set up a tent.

  2. Next summer we should go there. Looks like a fantastic camping spot. How far in do you have to hike?
