A Park Ranger’s sacrifice

This story is a tragic reminder that not only are the mountains dangerous, but that others will risk their lives to help others in the mountains. Mt. Rainier (picture below) is a serious mountain.

My interactions with the Ranger crew at Mt. Katahdin were nothing but positive- all they cared about was our safety (and, well, their rules). I’ll do my best to remember this story next time I’m in the mountains.
