Dixie Butte - a 7,500' peak with a road to the top.  Sound boring? Try it in the winter.  What may otherwise be a slog up a dusty double track becomes a trek through a peaceful and empty forest.  And don't let the height fool you - once you break above treeline you're treated to views often reserved for peaks with 5-digit elevations.

Looking for a good peak to get your peakbagging toes wet?  In June, 2016 we found a great beginner peak: Rock Roll Peak near Ketchum, ID.  And if you get to the top and still want more, get some scrambling with a short hike to a neighboring peak.

Winter hike to Smith Creek Falls

Winter hike to Smith Creek Falls

One of my favorite type of hikes is the "Natural Phenomenon" hike.  A hike that allows you to witness something that transcends the already-spectacular beauty of the outdoors and gives you a once-a-season or even once-a-lifetime experience.  My hike last weekend to Smith Creek Falls definitely qualifies.
