Phil Hough

Phil graduated from Colby College in 1981 with a BA in English Literature. After 20+ years in Hotel/Hospitality management, organizing and directing staff, assisting with sales and marketing and coordinating events and conventions, Phil moved to Sagle, Idaho in 2002. He is a past president of the American Long Distance Hikers West Assoc (ALDHA-WEST), a past president of the Kinnikinnick Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society, and the former chair of the Bonner County Aquatic Invasive Species Task Force. His love of the wilderness has led him to thru hike the entire Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest trail (twice) and most of the Continental Divide Trail as well as to paddle the length of the Yukon river, among many other shorter trips to most of the corners of our continent. During the summer months Phil leads back country trips for the Galena Ridge School for troubled teens. In May 2009 Phil was presented with a "Brass Lantern" volunteer award by the Montana Wilderness Association and in May 2007 Phil was awarded the Idaho Conservation League's highest award for environmental activism for his work on the proposed Scotchman Peaks Wilderness Area. Phil is shown here with his better half and hiking partner, Deb Hunsicker.
