and trekking into a lodge. Came across two dudes who knew my brother and who had gone in for the night but not to the lodge like us. They had a small l shovel on their packs. They built a snow cave and slept in that. Those mountain people are a breed apart. These people feel awe every adventure and are doing what they love. Sorry for your loss. I don't understand it either. I lived in a tea house one summer above Lake Louise, Alberta. There was an easy hiking trail up to the 'beehive lookout' next door (tea house is on lake agnes right beside the beehive). I never went to the big beehive. I was afraid of heights. I went into Banff town on my days off. See picture below. Everyone else i worked with went hiking on their days off. There is a purpose for people like me too I'm sure. But these mountaun climbers are the people who would have been explorers in another time. Anyone who took their family and left their village in the last 300,000 years to find something better is one of them. Astronaughts and test pilots too. We would be nowhere without their desire for challenge and fearlessness. But yes their families suffered for their fearlessness.
