Woke up this morning to quite the scare, hearing that friend and colleague Aaron, one of the four in Fourio, and his friends had been in an accident on Mt. Hood yesterday. I just talked to him and he was in good humor (I’m sure the pain medicine helped that), with a broken jaw being the most serious injury. I know Aaron and his team are very experienced climbers, and I’m sure that training helped prevent further problems.

Here’s wishing Aaron and Jeremy a speedy recovery.
