Fir Mountain and Big Indian Date Climbed: Nov 30, 2013
A beautiful day with the sun shining throughout. About an inch of snow at the trailhead with a few inches above 3500ft. The hike up Fir Mountain was enjoyable, despite the limited summit views. Hiking the ridge, across the Col and up Big Indian was a bit annoying: lots of bushwacking with walls of fir trees to negotiate. Overall, the effort made the entire trip worthwhile. Roughly 11mi round trip.
Burnham Hollow Bushwack Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2000
Sorry for the aliteration, couldn't help myself.
This bushwack took us first up to Fir Mtn and we then caught the land bridge over to Bid Indian. Next we dropped to the trail and walked over Eagle and then Balsam Mtns before dropping into McKinley Hollow. Not too shabby for a 3500'Club outing.
