The central section of Idaho's Lemhi Range offers a celebration of mountain peaks suitable for longer day hikes or an extended backpack. Life is short. Climb as many of these peaks as you can. You won't regret time well spent. Here are some to get you started. Cheers!

View ENE to the pointed summits of Mogg Mountain el 10573' (L), and Buffalo Skull Peak el 10735' (R). This is Morse Creek drainage. Photo 5/17/08.

View NE to Patterson Peak el 10602' on 7/12/98. All peaks shown are on the main crest of the Lemhi Range and my personal preference is to approach from the Lemhi Valley side. To be continued....
