HIKING  -- Jim Mellen, a hyperactive North Idaho member of the Friends of the Scotchman Peaks Wilderness, celebrated his 65th birthday on Wednesday by hiking Forest Service Trail 65 for the 7-mile roundtrip -- to the top of Scotchman Peak.

He snowboarded down and posted these photos, including the one (above) of the view from the peak's 7,009-foot summit overlooking Lake Pend Oreille.
