As a mountainous guy I'm here sharing in your solemnity. For most of my life I've thought this is pretty much how I might go, on my skis somewhere beautiful. We accept these risks so we can keep moving our consciousness forward. By now I've seen bears, moose, a wolverine, lots of horned sheep, slab avalanches, whiteouts, snow tornadoes and watched my life flash up in my periphery more times than I can count. Having touched on that void, I just want to say you can hold out hope that your friend may simply be a bit ahead of you.

Thanks for those sentiments, cberg. No risk, no reward, right!

Damn, reading the news story on her death really choked me up. The images of her red Subaru Impreza parked at the trailhead gutted me. I remember driving to dinner with her in that vehicle last April. We hugged goodbye for the last time at her place, and talked of me visiting her in New England and hiking the White Mountains. :(

Adopt the Impreza if you can. Give it a good home and a memorial ej257 long block driveline.

I've hiked to Mount Washington.

If you're an experienced hiker, the ascent is not really that difficult.
