Smoke in the Head  Sucess!

We hiked the trail to the broad, windswept, grassy saddle just before Scenic Point. From there, we hiked to the south to the saddle near Medicine Peak. My partner opted to take a nap out of the wind, but I made an ascending traverse on good footing to the summit of Bison. Smoke from the Sprague Fire led to worsening views as the day went along, but I opted to make the quick detour to The Head. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of being atop this peak is the impression that you are standing directly atop the edge of the mighty Lewis Overthrust. I traversed across the north slopes of Bison before rejoining the other member of my party. We took an off-trail route down easy scree slopes to the large switchback on the Scenic Point trail high above Appistoki Basin. Capped off the day with a dip in Pray Lake. Aside from the smoke, it was an otherwise spectacular day in Two Medicine!
