Sherpa died doing something he loved.

Sherpa died doing something he loved.

There is a facebook group.  “Bring Kris Fowler (Sherpa) home”.

.

One of my peers, on the Pacific Crest Trail class of 2016, went missing over a month ago.  His last known location was White Pass.  They haven’t found his body, but lets face it – he’s dead.

.

I can’t bring myself to be sad for him.  He died doing something he loved.  Life in today’s society has so little meaning, but life on the trail is so rich.  This is a good death — I would pick this over dying in my sleep in bed any day.

    Interesting article. Did you know he has not been legally pronounced deceased? This is such a misleading post and have had numerous conversations with his Stepmom. Let’s give them some sort of hope and remove the article saying he is dead. It is not even known if he remained on the trail or left for that job he was telling a family member about.
