My sincerest condolences go out to Kevin's family and to Travis. This is a very sad situation.

With that said, I implore all involved in the situation not to put a plaque anywhere on the mountain. We have already (as a society) put way too many plaques on the hills, destroying the purity and pristine nature of these peaks. Let's respect and honor Kevin in every way possible, but please don't litter the mountains with another plaque.

I believe Travis has already decided not to put the plaque up there.

My condolences to Kevin’s family and friends. I’ll be thinking of Kevin and Travis when I climb this weekend.

Thanks Kent for posting this song. I've heard it before but never paid any attention to the lyrics.

Yeah....I was thinking of Kevin yesterday on South Little Bear.

Was on Little Bear Friday 6/8, Kevin was on my mind.
Cannot look at the hourglass without remembering him.
Thinking of Travis, Kevin's family & friends... [-o< R.I.P.

i, too, just thought of Kevin, such a loss.
I wonder if the memory card from his camera was ever found and passed on to his family

Thanks Terry for your post. Yes...it was 2 years ago on June 15th that Kevin Hayne passed away on Little Bear.

Remembering and praying for his Dad-Lynn, Mom-Beth, and sister-Alyssa today. May God carry each of you through this day of remembrance.

And let this be a reminder to each of us in this climbing community that we live in mortal bodies and that we too can pass. Climb safely! And as Kevin would say often say...."ONWARDS."

He got that word out of the Apostle Paul's letter to the Philippians. (Chapter 3.)

13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

So hard to believe it has been two years today. For as our minds fade with age, some memories just never will, and this day for our two families is unforgettable....

To my son, Travis, who has redirected his life goals and matured so quickly beyond his years, much as a result of what happened this day two years ago. I will continue to miss you this summer, as I'd give anything to be hiking by your side, but your focus and attention to serve our country truly makes me so proud! I look forward to your return, and maybe we'll be able to get a hike or two in at the end of the season.

To the Hayne family, your son brought so many things to so many people. A love for the mountains for Travis and I, as well as countless others. A friendship between our two families that will never fade. And most importantly a belief in God that could not, and can not be denied.

To Kevin, we Love You, and though you are missed terribly by so many I know you're watching over us from above....almost every weekend this summer I plan to hike up and visit you (from 14k something feet), please watch over me and the rest of our 14-er family...ONWARD!

Thank You Kevin Hayne!
I made it Kevin! One away from finishing the 14s. I am so glad I got to meet you along the way.
Looking back at the memories I have from these mountains, I think of you.
Our winter summit of Humboldt, a mile from the bottom,whoop ass tired you looked up at me and told me I was a beast. I was 53 and you made me smile.
I didn't tell you, but all I was doing was trying to survive and keep up with you!
You are an amazing young man! God took you to soon. I know he needed you for more important things.
We will be thinking of you next weekend from the summit, Longs Peak.

You inspired me,
John
