  1. Phil Fitzpatrick says

    As reported in The Almanack, Scott made his way over snow and ice to rescue a woman who had broken her hip just after reaching the summit of Mt. Marcy. Scott, other Rangers and volunteers spent many hours on this rescue, and carried the woman all the way down on a litter. In speaking about what probably was his very last of many rescues, Scott didn’t blow his own horn at all, but complimented the injured woman for not complaining.

    Now he is personally reaching out to supporters of the Paul Smith’s VIC to let them know that they are appreciated and to solicit their suggestions for improvements.

    What a guy !
