Again we have tragedy touch our list.. albeit in a round-about way...
Still, I have to think about my young daughters who are afraid when I venture up to the mountains. If they knew how careful I was, they might (and do) relax.. [after all, I take them for their horseback riding/jumping classes]..
Still, they think I could fall off of Mt. Whitney.. I assure them that I will not, however, last time I climbed.. a young man from Arizona did just that.. They recovered his body several days later.
God bless those who go to the mountain and especially those reservists who risk it to go help!
Good on ya, Jamie!
