Wow. Logged on for the first time in a couple of years this morning, was not expecting this. So sad. He was a great guy, quick with a joke and always helpful. I remember him giving me great advice when I was planning a trip to NYC years back. I know this is late, but RIP Mat, you'll be missed.
For those not on Facebook, I climbed Mt Evans yesterday. Just under 10 miles roundtrip, 3100 vertical feet. It was a tough hike, made even tougher by a possible Fudgey story (I forgot I don't do well with plums). I certainly remembered VTE and his love for the outdoors once I got to the top. Hard not to get at least a little choked up trying to get a picture to share in his memory. I will try to get pics posted later today.
Edit: Here is a link to the photobucket album where I uploaded all of the photos.
