This picture takes a while to download, but it’s really cool! It’s looking southwest from the Idaho side toward the Kirkwood Creek Ranch in the foreground and Temperance Creek in the background on the Oregon side. That’s Summit Ridge way in the background. Notice the trail running along the river… that’s not the one you’ll be on… but the trail coming up the side of the mountain in the foreground IS !!!
