Great day, awesome views
A bushwhack with beautiful flowers.
Wow, there sure was a lot of cow crap back there... parked at first cattle guard on FS-167 and hiked up the south face. Lots of bird and deer hunters in the area. Enjoyed the interesting rock formations, and the views from the top were fantastic.
Great day with Splattski, Trip report here:http://www.splattski.com/2011/danskin/index.html
This peak can be seen from I-84
Started a bit further north than we’d intended, and ended up dealing with more snow than planned. Almost got stuck in the mud on the way in, but any day in the mountains is a good one. Here’s a trip-report and some photos.
hiked the last 1200 vertical feet or so up the road to the top. Not sure this elevation is accurate but in any event there are great views of the Trinities and Prairie and the South Fork Boise from the summit. Still a fair amount of snow along the road that kept the 4 wheelers off the upper part of the mountain.
