|1. Oquirth Mountains is really Oquirrh ("Oak-er") Mountains on the page and in the photo captions. Don't ask me where they (map makers) got that spelling!|
2. Perhaps mention that this is really a sub peak/ridge of Big Beacon/Mt. Wire rather than a seperate mountain.
3. "Addition Information" looks a bit screwy on my computer. Perhaps eliminate some spaces to make it a text block?
Other than that it looks good. Too bad it wasn't sunny for you.

|Thanks Scott. However, Red Butte really wasn't a ridge of Big Beacon/Mt. Wire. It was far separated from Mount Wire, and there was no connecting ridge to speak of. I will make the changes.|

Hmmmm, hate to disagree, but actually it is, in fact it is part of the second most popular route to Mount Wire-the Georges Hollow loop route.
The summit of Red Butte is actually the northern most closed 6600 foot contour. There is only a 20 foot saddle between Red Butte and the northwest ridge of Mount Wire, and Red Butte is part of that ridge. See the map (the x is the summit of Red Butte):
