Route Climbed: South Ridge Trail Date Climbed: July 5, 2005  Sucess!

We came in from the Burr Trail (to the south) after doing some peaks such as Mine Camp, Fishlake Hightop and Bluebell Knoll (Boulder Top) prior. Traversing the Hells Backbone road and then heading east via the Burr Trail were special highlights of this trip. We drove north towards Sandy Junction and turned

east towards McMillan Springs Campground where we spent the night. The next day, we drove the five miles up to Bull Creek Pass and did the easy hike to the top of Mount Ellen. No buffalo were spotted although we did see many deer.



After, doing Mount Ellen, we tried to go east from Bull Creek Pass but were stopped by snowbanks. Haze kept our views down but this area is an incredible place. I'll be back to do more of the Henry mountains in the future.
