    I cease to be amazed by the stupidity of the collective decision of these 4 to go “hiking” in a raging storm.
    Would it not be better for the human race to leave natural selection to work it’s magic?
    I feel sorry for the men & woman that are looking for them.
    My two cents…

    Be sure and bill the responsible parties for the emergency rescue.

  • Robert S.

    All the rescued are fine, and this is good. Mental evaluations are now being arrainged.
