Ascent Trip Report

I drove 11.2 miles up the dirt road along Indian Creek, which is approached from Nevada State Highway 264; also, the last 5 miles or so require a high clearance 4x. I then backpacked to Birch Creek, camping at 11,600' in elevation. The springs were dry at my camp; however, I found water about 300' below where I camped. The next day I hiked over to Indian Peak, climbing Mount Hogue along the way. The last accent of Indian Peak was on July 2, 2013 and the summit register is in a 35 mm film canister. Also, trip stats include an ascent of Mount Hogue.
