Page of the Day

(I just happened on this at break this evening reading the SF Chronicle...I know some of the story my ownself, as Tom and Theresa are good friends hereabout...and it's a cautionary tale...when hiking with others, stay together, within sight, or within earshot, preferably sight!, and when going off trail, be cautioned that nothing may be what it seems, rocks and boulders can be loose...even on trail, a rock can be loose....another caution I've noted my ownself, is large branches broken off trees that haven't fallen to the ground, yet...they hang in the canopy like swords of Damocles!...another cautionary tale is of a climber rescued the other day from a ledge on Dome mear Merced Lake...climbing alone, he got to point where he couldn't go up, or down, and called for help on a cell phone---he was just high enough for line of sight to the Repeater near Sentinel...I have this hope that someday everyone will carry an emergency beacon, that will call, and give location, when trouble 'falls'....)
