I've only hiked with John once, to the best of my recollection. He
came on a Mountaineers trip I led to Banshee and Central Cowlitz a few years
The only thing I'd like to pass on is my observation that his county
highpointing accomplishments in Washington - though only a tiny piece of what
he's done in the state - are to my mind the second most impressive county
highpointing accomplishment by an individual. [It's hard to compete
with Bob Packard's overall record.]
