Story from Washington Post on a hiker perishing in Mt. Washington. This story, and place, seems to be a perennial.

It's always sad when someone passionate about the outdoors meets tragedy. He wasn't the only one caught on the mountain that day. It seems that many ignored forecasts and strong warnings not to go.

I read a ways into the comments section under the article. Quite a lot of thoughtful and insightful comments, actually -- I was pleasantly surprised.
