Crossing hikes off my list...for some reason I hadn't done this one before. It would have been nice to see it before the 2011 Wallow Fire. :( It turned out to be a lot nicer of a hike than I was expecting. The lower mountain has very nice aspen growth and shade, and the views on the climb are outstanding. The summit has the most severe burn, but the aspen are starting to grow again there too.

It looks as if the trail has been cleared one time, perhaps a couple of years ago. Since then, there has been ample new deadfall, especially on the top of the mountain. It added a bit of a challenge, but wasn't nearly as bad as it could be. Still, it would take a crew with hand saws (it's wilderness) a few days to get it fully cleared again. Hopefully that happens sometime this summer or next.
