    Bear Blaze here- We (Motley Thru) may have been the last people to talk to him. We saw him at Cornelius shelter during lunch. He was sectioning and it was his second day on trail. He sounded like he may have struggled up the incline that day but seemed fine when we spoke to him. He was talkative and in good spirits, happy to be on trail. Must have been natural causes. Our condolences to his loved ones.

    That's a real shame. At least he died doing something he loved.

    Doing what, gasping for his last breath?

    Sorry to hear about that, I feel bad for his family. But I also agree, that's how I want to go out someday. Hopefully in my favorite spot up in the Sawtooths. My grandkids will spread my ashes up there someday.

    Yeah for real, I just read the article about the woman being struck by lightning. Oh well, you can die in your bed with the doors locked or you can die outside having fun.

    Dogs are excellent judges of character, this fact goes a long way toward explaining why some people don't like being around them.

    Shelter From The Storm, re-interpretation by Steve Adey, 2004
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0zvHqxPUTU


    Shelter From The Storm
    - Bob Dylan, 1975

    ’Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
    When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
    I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    And if I pass this way again, you can rest assured
    I’ll always do my best for her, on that I give my word
    In a world of steel-eyed death, and men who are fighting to be warm
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Not a word was spoke between us, there was little risk involved
    Everything up to that point had been left unresolved
    Try imagining a place where it’s always safe and warm
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    I was burned out from exhaustion, buried in the hail
    Poisoned in the bushes an’ blown out on the trail
    Hunted like a crocodile, ravaged in the corn
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Suddenly I turned around and she was standin’ there
    With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair
    She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Now there’s a wall between us, somethin’ there’s been lost
    I took too much for granted, got my signals crossed
    Just to think that it all began on a long-forgotten morn
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Well, the deputy walks on hard nails and the preacher rides a mount
    But nothing really matters much, it’s doom alone that counts
    And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    I’ve heard newborn babies wailin’ like a mournin’ dove
    And old men with broken teeth stranded without love
    Do I understand your question, man, is it hopeless and forlorn?
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes
    I bargained for salvation an’ they gave me a lethal dose
    I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    Well, I’m livin’ in a foreign country but I’m bound to cross the line
    Beauty walks a razor’s edge, someday I’ll make it mine
    If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born
    “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

    My condolences to his family & friends
    The trail was here before we arrived, and it will still be here when we are gone...enjoy it now, and preserve it for others that come after us
