This is one of my "secret' viewpoints in the Mt Jefferson Wilderness.  We will hike the Bingham Ridge Trail through high elevation mountain hemlock forest and then enter a stretch of burned forest from the B and B Fire.  Reentering green forest, we will leave the trail and hike about 1/3 mile up a cinder cone to fabulous views of Bingham Basin and Mt Jeff.
