Point 6607

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Looking to Point 6607 and the Three Sisters beyond, Bridge Creek Wilderness (bobcat)

Description

The rocky unburned promontory of Point 6607 in the Bridge Creek Wilderness offers wide-ranging views: Even on a slightly hazy day, you can see the snowy peaks of the Cascades from Mount Adams in the north to Diamond Peak in the south. Right below you are a couple of interesting lava ridges: like the rim itself, these are part of early Miocene lava flow. Copses of gnarled mountain mahogany trees stand out among the sagebrush, and it worth your while to tarry in hope the of plotting raptors gliding by.
