lost river range in idaho car camp • 4 days
The Lost River Range is the tallest mountain range in Idaho, with 7 of the 9 12,000-footers in the state. The east side of the range is deeply sculpted with glacial canyons, with many cliffs and pinnacles. The range gets surprisingly light visitation given that it's just 4 hours' drive from Salt Lake. Donn has booked the Loristica Group Campground for 4 nights starting on Thursday 8/28. It's probably overkill, since the site handles up to 100 people and 15 vehicles, but it was surprisingly affordable, and it's up at 8,100 feet elevation in evergreen forest at the edge of a meadow. Come Thursday or come Friday, and we'll find a fine place to go hiking, with possibilities for easy and hard routes. Well-behaved dogs are invited too (with their owners).
This activity is being organized by a Wasatch Mountain Club
