John Slayden (1935-1995) enjoyed hiking in the mountains of the Northeastern U.S., and he introduced his sons Greg, Glenn, and Keith to outdoor mountain adventures.

As a young boy, John spent several summers in the Adirondacks, climbing many of the High Peaks of that range. In college, his roommate Fred Bowden introduced him to hiking in the White Mountains of New Hamsphire, using the AMC hut system to make week-long trips. During three trips in 1960-1962 John and his wife Muriel climbed most of the major peaks in the Presidential and Franconia ranges with the Bowdens.

After the birth of their sons, the Slaydens returned to the White Mountains almost every year from 1974 to 1983, and John had climbed 29 of the New Hampshire 4000 foot peaks by 1981.
