I wrote a little sketch on snowshoeing on Mt. Ripinsky for National Geographic Traveler that was just shared in the latest edition of the news magazine, The Week. So far so good. But as soon as anyone googles Mt. Ripinsky + snowshoeing they'll find Tom Morphet's great Chilkat Valley News story about Keith Hutchins' fall off the mountain and the amazing rescue. And I wrote it was a wonderful place for a nice winter hike. It still is, of course, and Keith was above tree-line in a storm (something I specifically caution against) but still. It is kind of funny.
