    I had just heard this...very sad!

    Knowing little of the circumstances, I will post the weather from the past few days. This morning the summit was glistening with fresh ice after a recent warm spell...sadly and tragically it looked very slick...

    Wow, first I've heard of this. How sad. Washington sure looked cold and blustery on Saturday, that is for sure.

    On a personal note, Dr. Walczak was a great person. Once he knew you liked to hike, his eyes just lit up, he got this big smile and could talk forever, oh the hiking stories! It really was a passion to him. So sad to hear this news.

    This sure has been a lousy month or two for physicans and hiking. A retired radiologist, Wade Burnett, fell to his death recently as he was climbing Mt Whitney. His obituary is here.

    Very tragic. The fact that this happened so close to Thanksgiving only adds to the tragedy.

    My thoughts, prayers and sympathy to his family, friends and patients.
