A father and two sons, ages 10 & 8, died after encountering bad weather on a hike. A really tragic story. Prayers and Condolences to the family.

Just hiked a stone's throw from there about three weeks ago. between Johnsons Shut ins and Taum Sauk.
Painful lessons. I feel bad for the family.

This is a very sad incident.

You must ALWAYS be prepared to spend the night (in bad weather) when hiking - no exceptions.
