  • Description:
    • Don't let the title of this hike confuse you.  Although there exists an actual "Scotchman Peak #2", this is just the second time I did Scotchman Peak.  At this point in the summer, I knew I was moving to Boise, so I wanted to get this particular hike in one more time.  I did it in 1998 with Greg Schmeising, but it was worth returning to.
    • I ran into a four people this particular day, which was actually nice for a change.  One of the things I have taken for granted in northern Idaho is the solitude that is experienced.  I have been told this will come to an end in southern Idaho.  Because of the lack of population and wide area to hike, I have been fortunate to be alone and run into very few people so far.  With more people and the draw of the back country more appealing to the south, my days of seclusion will likely come to an end.
    • Anyway, it was a great hike and I will refer you to the 1998 hike for any limited directions that I gave.

    • The scenery didn't change except for a bit less snow, so I will refer you to the 1998 hike for photos.
