Mount Harrison is the most northern mountain before the flatlands of the Snake River Plain. The view on a clear day must seem to extend forever. Near the summit is Pomerelle Ski Area, a resort that surprisingly gets a fair amount of snow. The very summit is easy to reach on a paved road and it has an active fire lookout as well.
