HIGH UINTAS NEWSLETTER #20

“LAST GASP FOR THE HIGH COUNTRY”

7 year old Nora Hirschi breaks trail for a Labor Day weekend assault on Kings Peak –See the epic adventures of my “trail buddies” on pages 76, 256, 386-389

DEAR HIGH UINTA FRIENDS,

I say “last gasp” as usually in late August and early September it is common for it to snow, with freezing temperatures almost always at night. The vegetation has turned brown, so scenery not so pretty, but the mosquitoes are gone.  But, cold is common with hypothermia being a danger if one doesn’t go well prepared, as was the case with the Wetherton mom, and her daughter who were lost on just a day hike–as they didn’t go prepared—not warm enough clothing, no rain gear, no water-proof matches, plus not letting anyone known exactly where they were going

A massive search turned up nothing. Their remains were found 9 months later at the beginning of the next backpacking season.  Their story is told on pages 347-349, along with crucial articles on hypothermia. 

But we have to see what happened to 7-year-old NORA. Her and father Jake made it about 10 miles the first day and camped. The 2nd day they went on to Kings Peak as you see below, then made it all the way to the Trailhead that day, for a total of 28 miles in two days. In the book you can learn of Nora’s 11 year old sister Grace, and 13 year old brother, Isaac. Both of them did the 28 mile roundtrip in ONE DAY!

To see the rest of the NEWSLETTER,

You’ll notice that 13,528 ft. high KINGS PEAK, is listed on their sign 1 foot lower–CAUSED BY SO MANY HIRSCHI’S CLIMBING THE PEAK DURING THE 2018 SEASON & CAUSING IT TO SINK 1 FOOT!!!!!
