Lessons learned from Independence Pass
A mother and three kids who got lost Monday on Independence Pass were found Tuesday, chilled but OK. It's getting to be that time of year when the high country is not only colder than we expect, but the days are getting shorter so it's easy to run out of light before finishing your hike.
Venerable ski mountaineer Lou Dawson has an interesting critique of the incident on his blog, www.wildsnow.com, detailing considerations adults should make when hiking with kids.
