Anyone taken Lodgepole Picnic area to Mt. Burnham? its a pretty sweet route that wastes no time heading up to the peak.



You would never know the trail starts here unless you read about it.

But....I also find it hard to peakbag in the Middle High country more than once so there was definitely a reason I came here Smile

A glider from the 70s! The pilot crashed while trying to recross the ridge on his sailplane and hit some trees on the downslope. He did not survive unfortunately Sad

Its a glider called Schempp-Hirth Cirrus (Registration #N6664)
