Missoula County, Montana


        Missoula County is located midway between
    the north and south state boundaries in west
    central Montana. The Idaho-Montana boundary
    defines the southwestern corner of the county's
    border. The landscape is largely mountainous
    and encompasses half of the Seeley-Swan Valley
    in the north, and a portion of the Bitterroot
    Valley in the south. A major part of the Lolo
    National Forest lies within the boundaries of
    Missoula County. The Blackfoot River flows
    west through the center of the county, while
    the Bitterroot River and Rock Creek enter from
    the south. All three rivers join the Clark
    Fork River at Missoula.
