Agree with this. I'm a parent of young children and have done a fair amount of backpacking before kids and tame hiking since (even worked as a lifeguard for several summers growing up) and I really had NO meaningful understanding of heatstroke before this story. Humbling. And so tragic for them. @Pumphouse363 I'm so sorry for your loss. I look forward to your perspective on what happened if you come to a point of feeling able to share it. I didn't know this family, but I have overlap professionally with EC and colleagues who knew her. This is what originally made me aware of the story. More emotionally powerful though, as a parent with young children and an interest in the outdoors, I identify with them. This story will stay with me for a log time, if not forever. Also want to echo others, the high caliber of conversation and thoughtful dialogue here around their story is really refreshing and, frankly, therapeutic, given the current anti-dialogue climate we live in. Thank you all.
