Smoky views due to forest fires Date Climbed: Aug 19, 1992
Visited after a great rafting trip on the Main Salmon. Views were limited due to a lot of forest fire smoke. A previous visit in the early '80s with climbs in the nearby mountains to the south was magnificent.

This is a must do hike if you're in the Seven Devils Mountains. The view looking back at the high peaks and down toward Hells Canyon is one of the best. I talked with the guy who works at the lookout and he showed me several fires that were in the area.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
