    After reading one of his trail books I had the pleasure of going to Rock Springs and went to his home and had a sit down visit with Finis. What a great person and with still a lot of energy,he autographed my book. What he and his wife did for the wilderness will be for every remembered. He’s still on a hike finding new places

    I am Finis Mitchell’s granddaughter and thought I would let you know that we are in the process of sending all of his slides photos etc to the University of Wyoming American Heritage Center where they will digitize and make available to everyone his great treasures. This is the right thing to do with his stuff to share with everyone.

    What an amazing hike and an amazing story behind the name of the peak. Finis Mitchell sounds like a really fantastic man with a big heart. I cannot believe that there was a span of 50 years between all his climbs! You must have felt very accomplished looking back up at the peak once you had made it back to the trail head.
