RedwicHitched a ride...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2016


As luck would have it and to avoid a long road hike on a 90+ degree afternoon, I hitched a ride with some four-wheeling locals for a small fee. We also visited the nearby Twin Crags LO site and the Benewah CoHP, as well, the latter being a short hike from where the driver stopped. We didn't stick around any of the sites very long because it was too hot, my riding buddies had other things they wanted to do, and possibly also because what they were doing was probably only quasi-acceptable.

The drive in was kind of miserable, but the hiking was nice and easy. Mirror Lake 100% iced over still, and snow on route to Benewah COHP.

Very warm day, no wind. Hiked with my son Lance after hiking Boundary Co. HP earlier in the day. Lance stayed in the car while I hiked over and bagged the Benewah cohp also

Bagged Latour Peak, Twin Crags, and the Benewah County highpoint in an easy day. Gorgeous weather and beautiful views. Ran across some fresh big feline tracks headed down the hill parallel to our tracks headed up the hill.

A nice easy hike to the top, still some snow patches in places. We hiked up the Benewah Highpoint shortly after. Nice weather and just a little wind.

Slept in my truck at the saddle. Beautiful place. Did Latour first thing in the morning. Mirror Lake about half frozen.
Hiked over to Benewah hp next. Saw a moose and calf on the drive back down.

Easy hike from the saddle. After this I did Benewah County the same afternoon.

Approached from the north by climbing Latour Baldy, up Mount Weissner, and then on to Latour Peak. A long, tiring day.

Bob and I did this one although we ended up hiking ten miles roundtrip to do it as the snow blocked the road. We hiked up to the ridgeline and hiked from there to the peak. Then we hiked over to the high point for neighboring Benewah County, again in the snow for the most part and had an enjoyable day in this neat part of Idaho.

This is the highpoint of my home county, so I have been here many times. One time was June 23, 2002. I rode my dirtbike up the Twin Crags Road from Latour Creek until the snow got too deep. There was one stretch that I could not get through. I hiked north to the top of the ridge, then east to Latour Peak. Mirror Lake was still mostly frozen. I then walked the ridge south to the Benewah COHP, which has a very flat summit. Trees surround the summit, and I figured there was at least 15 feet of snow which blew in all winter and melted very slowly. I have been there in June, July, August, September, and October. In 2006 I found two snow patches on Aug 12, and there was a skiff of fresh snow in mid October. I was told by residents of Cataldo that the trout in Mirror Lake used to bite on anything you'd throw at them. I don't know if this is still the case, as it is frozen for the majority of the year and is very small.
