A Little About Me
Vernon was an important contributor on SummitPost, but beyond merely making good, informative pages, he actually inspired many who read his work. No one put more work into his or her pages than Vernon did, and many of those pages, especially those related to Glacier National Park, the place he loved above all others, are works of art in both the writing and layout. More than one person has wanted to visit Glacier or go back to Glacier largely due to what he shared about that magnificent place.
Many people on SP counted Vernon among their friends, and many more saw him as one of the best, one of those who exemplified the spirit of this site. He was one of the best of us, he will be missed, and he will not be forgotten.
As a tribute to him, Vernon's pages will remain in his name. Any member who sees a need for an addition or correction should please contact site management via the "Send PM to the Elves" feature.
Rest well and climb on, Vernon.
I climb because the voices in my head tell me to.
"No person who has yet to discover some of the pleasures of climbing can possibly realize the intangibles associated with a day on the mountain."
J. Gordon Edwards
"Again foul weather shall not change my mind,
But in the shade I will believe what in the sun I loved."
Henry David Thoreau
