Havre man knows the Bear Paws
Last updated ERROR at ERROR
The Bear Paw Mountains provide an alluring backdrop for Havre. For some, they provide hunting grounds. For others they provide a scenic drive. But for Jerry Hayes, they are a classroom full of history and solitude.
Hayes has been taking students from Havre High School and area schools on tours of the Bear Paws for 10 years. Hayes' tours are full of historical information and wonderful stories.
Hayes was born in Chinook and raised in Havre. He joined the Marines in 1953 and returned to Havre in 1956 to go to Northern Montana College. He was the captain of the Lights football team in 1957.
