Thank you Karen

Once again our outdoor community has lost a guiding light.  Karen Sykes; author photographer and hiking guru to many, was lost on Mt Rainier this week.  I never met her in person but her book, Best Wildflower Hikes was my first hiking guidebook.  Forums and blogs are filled with tribute to her wisdom, energy and fabulous storytelling.

Thank you Karen for opening up many areas to me and taking me to places I would not have imagined.  I look forward to someday visiting more of the areas you told me about.
