About This Site
The main purpose of this site is to be a place to display photos and descriptions of hikes I've taken. The primary audience is my friends and family, so the route descriptions aren't meant to be overly detailed. But if you're considering a trip in an area I've visited, don't hesitate to contact me to get more specifics. I'm happy to share what I know.
Much of the shape and feel of this site is inspired by other hiking websites I enjoy, and hopefully imitation is the best form of flattery. See the links page under Other Stuff for examples of some excellent sites.
I'm been blessed to have grown up hiking and backpacking here in Idaho. Lately I've been spending quite a bit of time scrambling up mountains. I really enjoy bagging peaks, and its become a year round hobby for me over the last few years. Winter snowshoeing, snow-climbs in spring and early summer, and then hiking and scrambling during the fair-weather months. I love mountaintops. The views are great, and there's something very rewarding about setting a summit goal and reaching it.
I don't mind hiking solo, but I prefer company, so feel free to drop me a line if you're interested in getting together for a hike or climb. My name is Dave, and my email address is dpahlas "at" hotmail "dot" com.
