MILE 45.5—Esker wth view of Crazy Notch  (:26)

Melting glaciers can leave behind ridges of gravel and sand that snake across the landscape with such perfect form that they almost seem manufactured. A gravel road leading south just before the road begins climbing into the Crazy Notch gives easy access to one of these ice-age remnants. Follow an old four-wheeler track up its flanks, and then use game trails to reach a high point with a 360-degree view of the surrounding country. With brush as high as your head, and blueberries crowding your waist, you’ll feel hidden, as though you’ve found a secret enclave. A great spot to spy on caribou.
