Thank you for sharing. Mark Hudon and I were literally talking about Mason's fall yesterday. We had just rapped off a route in the rain in Kings Canyon, and we were sitting around with chips and salsa, safe on the ground, discussing risk and climbing and freak accidents. I never met Mason but I hear he was one of the good ones. It's good to see you post here and we can all learn from your insight on being there that day. I hope you are mending inside and that the mountains continue to bring you joy and stoke and a wild spirit like they do all of us. See you around maybe.
Many thanks specifically to Neebee, who painted this portrait of Mason for his parents. I met with Mason's parents tonight, and it was a bittersweet reunion, getting together to remember and honor Mason.
Neebee sent this portrait to Mason's parents shortly after the accident. It means a lot to them Neebee- Thank You!
