    I am a grieving mother too, having lost my son nine months ago. He too, was hiking and succumbed to hypothermia. He was 26. I’m so sorry to have read this story of Ralph “Skip” Baker. Also, disappointed that his story was not even worthy of a full printed article. I had to continue reading it online. Mr. Baker served our country and still, the ADIRONDACK EXPLORER didn’t have enough space to tell his story in print…. I wish I had known him and it would be an honor to meet his family. It sounds as if he really tried his best, to seek beauty in nature and life. My heart goes out to all of his loved ones who are mourning their loss. For “Skip”, I would like to think that he is resting in peace and, in paradise.
