 Hiking-related Deaths
There seem to be a large number of hiking-related deaths in the news over the past year. New Hampshire certainly has its share of accidents, but other areas do as well. Are we as outdoor enthusiasts doing enough to ensure our own safety? Does the recent trend towards "extreme" sports open us up to unnecessary danger? Are outdoor enthusiasts taking the right steps to ensure their own safety? Or are these all just unprepared, inexperienced, or dim-witted people?
