Pacific Northwest hiker

A renowned trail guide book writer and photographer, Ira Spring, died last week. I wonder if he ever encountered my grandfather while hiking?
He had been hiking since the 1920s and went on his first backcountry excursion, a trip with his father to High Divide above the North Fork of the Nooksack River, at the age of 11.
