November 2020 – Hotshots Memorial trail
It’s November 21, and it is a beautiful day to get out and hike. 21 scouts and adults made the drive to the Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial State Park trailhead to make the hike to the fatality site. The hike is a mix of steep rocky beauty and somber overviews. The memorial at the fatality site really brought the magnitude of the tragedy to light. This is well worth the effort and a must-do if you have never done it before. Here is a link to the park’s website with more details.
