Mike Hays

Mike grew up in north Idaho and has well over 100 summits, most between the Canadian border and the Salmon River axis. A botanist by profession, he often selects summits that may host interesting sub-alpine or alpine flora. He also has been quite active in the Elkhorn and Wallowa Mountains of adjacent Oregon and scattered locations throughout the Rockies.

Mike’s excellent, in depth contributions provide more than just access and route information. He includes great discussions of the geography, geology and flora. You can find all of Mike’s entries by typing his name into the search box.
