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.
