Ascent Trip Report

I hiked up Mickey Butte from Mickey Hot Springs. Nice hike across sagebrush desert to the unnamed drainage on the south side of Mickey Butte. Half way up the drainage I came upon a grassy area that was freshly laid in and something had been gnawing on the rear legs of a sheep. I kept going up to the Mickey/6275 saddle and then up to the summit. After tagging Mickey Butte, I hiked across the saddle to point 6275 and then came down the next drainage west of the one I went up. I saw 3 live sheep while coming down this drainage. Nice hike on a cloudy windy day. I combined all the hiking stats on the totals for Mickey Butte.
