A floatplane excursion offers bird's-eye views of the Hungry Horse Reservoir in Flathead National Forest. Created by the damming of the Flathead River, the reservoir—about 34 miles long and popular with fishermen, boaters, and swimmers—is tucked high in the Rocky Mountains near the Continental Divide.
