For those who venture to this forgotten corner of the Okanogan Highlands, solitude is guaranteed. So are fantastic views from an open summit of basalt. Big game is abundant in the forests and meadows, and a quiet hiker and dog should witness deer, bear, or elk. The only drawback: Fir Mountain tends to be a dry place come midsummer. Pack plenty of fluids. Your poochie may be disappointed—the fir is Doug fir, not dog fur. However, many are quite old, even if measured in dog years!
