1 body

If you haven't read or heard, rescuers found one body on Mount Hood, believed to one of three climbers missing for a week. They also retrieved equipment from a snow cave - there found two, not far from the summit - they'll use in the continued search.

My thoughts go out to the hikers and their family and friends and the rescue teams. It has been brutal up on that mountain. If you hear more news, post a comment. If you're headed out into our mountains, even for a short hike, be careful. Weather is upon us.

Hood is brutal any time of year, but especially in winter. When you take on the kind of challenge and risk these guys enjoyed, death is your constant companion. Peace to the deceased and to those they touched.
