Retrieval of Station fire memorial on Whitney

by Bildonator » Wed Sep 30, 2009 10:58 pm

On September 10, 2009 I and a group of friends summitted Mount Whitney. We set out from Horshoe meadow on 9/8 and traveled by way of New army pass, rock creek, Sky blue lake, Discovery pinnacle, and trail crest.
The week preceeding the trip saw the tragic death of two friends from the Station fire, and I thought it would be cool to set out a small memorial of the two (Ted Hall and Arnie Quinones) at the register on top so others could share their thoughts in a memory book for the families.
The photo and memory book were to be retrieved by a friend who had planned to retrieve it on 9/30/09.
Weather and other circumstances prevented my buddy from grabbing it.
I was wondering if any Summit post members who were planning a Whitney trip anyway would consider retrieving the photo and memory book. I would of course re-imburse postage etc.
If you can help PM me.
