I just received the morning paper here in Telluride. Another of us is gone. This is so sad. http://www.telluridenews.com/articles/2010/09/28/news/doc4ca158a180fc9528248294.txt
What do you call a guy like me up here
More than a hiker, but not quite a mountaineer
The thighs labor and the breathing is hard
I hold high places in the highest regard

This has been such a hard season. I know that accidents happen every year but it doesn't seem like they were stacked like this. This is another real tragedy and my thoughts are out for him. Be careful out there.

RIP John Merrill. My thoughts are with his family and friends during this most difficult time. The report says his wife is pregnant, and my heart is broken for her.

I echo mtgirl's statement.... How tragic is every death in the hills but to leave a wife and unborn child behind..... particularly sad indeed. Prayers to them..... May they find strength......
