    no gps/maps/phones while hiking?

    are the trails in that park well-marked or do people just basically wander?

    here's the park websites:

    Oh no! I was afraid this wasn't going to end well. So, so sorry. Much love to their family and friends.

    Search teams find bodies of missing Corpus Christi hikers


    "Robert and Bobby were just looking forward to this Father's Day trip they put off a couple times and finally decided to go," said Pastor Mark Behrendt of Galilean Lutheran Church. "To have this happen is just overwhelming."

    Not confirmed but I bet it was the heat. It's been unbearable lately around these parts. So sad.

    At the time of their disappearance, temperatures were in excess of 100 degrees. NMSP have not verified the cause of death for the two men, but have indicated that dehydration may have played a factor.

    What a tragedy!

    I hope the wife/mother has other close family to lean on and find comfort. It must be extremely hard to lose both husband and son at the same time.

    Heartbreaking

    I have a couple of the wife's Green Start books.

    Here is what she posted on social media. I hope this is ok.

    I love cut flowers and pot plants, and wouldn't mind a few, BUT to truly honor the memories of my beloved husband and son, these are my wishes:
    In lieu of flowers, I’m asking for donations to be sent to any of these three places. Two national parks and a ministry they participated in at our church.
    https://www.nps.gov/cave/getinvolved/donate.htm
    Folks can send a check to the following address, noting that this is a donation in honor Robert and Bobby's memory. They need to include your address so you will receive an acknowledgment of the donation.
    Big Bend National Park
    P.O. Box 129
    Big Bend National Park, TX 79834

    Galilean Lutheran Church
    3321 Cimarron Blvd
    Corpus Christi, TX 78414
    Please mark the donation to be used for Men In Mission and note it’s in the memory of Robert and Bobby Pluta
