Plus the story of a fatality and the ensuing rescue on Mount Washington in 1983 during an unusual weather period where the mountain became completely covered in ice. We have recent hikes on the Grand Traverse, Mount Washington and Pleasant mountains. A rabid fox story that we skipped over last week, Flower drama in Stomps area, claims of Sabotage on Mt. Everest, more details on the Massachusetts hiker attacked by a Grizzly, a fatality at an indoor climbing gym, shark news, and rescues on Mt. Cardigan, Edmands Col, and the Rocky Branch trail
