So very sad.

"Mark Samuel Albert Stice, 36, set out in mid-September to climb the Crestones, in Custer County, CO, and never returned and has not yet been found. Over 800 hours of volunteer time was spent trying to find him, but the search was hampered by snow, ice and high winds at altitudes over 13, 000 feet. While we believe he will someday be found, the time has now come to remember him and celebrate his life..."

Especially tragic for the family not having recovery of his body.


Return to Colorado
