Maverick:

Yep, I was at Crabtree maybe 6 years ago?? Sounds like you've run into most of us, which is actually unusual... .

Do you happen to remember (or can dredge up) exactly when and where you met Randy near Arrow Peak? Was it 1996? I'd be really interested, if so.

Thanks,

George

No it was 94 or 95 not 96, sorry.
I've been to the Window Lake area before and its quite isolated as is Arrow Lake Basin.
I remember following the investigation, which still brings back feelings of
hopelessness, but I know this does not compare to the loss his fellow rangers felt
at the time and still feel to this day.
