Rescue called off

You've probably already heard/read (my computer was tied up by someone doing homework, of all things!): The search for 2 climbers missing on Mount Hood has been called off. With no sign of them since the search began more than a week ago, the discovery of a deceased colleague and climbing gear near the summit, and another storm hitting, I don't know what other decision officials could make.

A small plane flew around the mountain again yesterday looking for the men, but fliers saw no signs of life.

Thoughts and prayers to their souls and to their friends and family members. It seems these men knew what they were doing. I'll focus on descriptions the photos developed from the camera found with Kelly James in his snow cave show three guys having the time of their lives on their climb up, doing what they loved.
