    Thanks for the story, Ray. Being a balloonist or balloonatic myself, I followed Steve Fossett’s adventures. While I knew that he had died in a crash, I had no idea that one day I would walk so close to the spot. I wish that I had heard this story before I did the JMT.

    I’ll pay my Respects as I hike by in late Sept.

    Thanks Ray. As a pilot I often have become interested in, somewhat unfortunately, airplane crash history near the places I hike. If you haven’t read them, take a look at Peter Stekel’s books on crashes in the Sierra’s. Both deal with crash sites near the JMT.
