    The most predictable hike, the hike we do the most, turned into an absolute delight today.

    There were no people at 9 am. It is an exposed hike in the sun. We came across an older ex- North Shore hiker who carries a yellow marker to remember all the previous hikers who have died. Of course there were the ravens and whiskey jacks.

    On the way down Search and Rescue had a kiosk handing out cool hiking swag like whistles and emergency blankets. They asked us one question and one question only. “Does someone know where you were going today?”

    Hi Patricia, what do you mean about the hiker carrying a yellow marker? All the NSH hikers who have died? All the hikers who have died accidentally?

    Sounds like a beautiful day.

    Good that NSSAR was out reminding people of the risks. Though we don’t need that after the death of the young woman near St. Marks.
