Awesome, Ellen. Check the register stand. Cecelia and I placed a logbook in there for Sam, which many people signed today, as well as the collage and some 4x6 prints of him. I also left pictures at the Hut and summit. But not very many. I plan to pick up the book on Monday and get it to his family somehow.

I learned from Shin that 3H is doing a memorial hike for Sam on May 20th. They are trying to get at least 200 people, the amount Sam needed to reach 1000 summits of Baldy.

Sally and I hiked up Bear to Baldy on Easter. When I saw the beautiful tribute to Sam at the plaque, I started crying.

Thank you to everyone who has and will continue to Summit4Sam.

From the heart,
Ellen

Someone, I don't know who, took the logbook. Fortunately, I have photos of the entries from Saturday which I will get to Sam's son, David. I hope that whoever took the book intends to deliver it to the family.

I went up Baldy yesterday - Monday 17th. No register at the top but some photos and food and flowers. Also this sign at the gate on San Antonio Falls road, services will be this Saturday.
This was my 31st summit but I'll be happy to stay at 30 and donate this one to the group.

I noticed the LA times posted this information:

A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on April 22 at St. Gregory Nazianzen Church, located at 911 S. Norton Ave. in Koreatown. A reception will follow and the family has invited hikers who knew Kim to attend and share stories and photos.

Sally and I hiked up Bear to Baldy on Easter to honor Sam. I was fine until I saw the beautiful tribute to Sam on the summit plaque (flowers, photos, hat) -- then I started crying.

Once I collected myself, I saw Chris Simpson and Sonja Koebnick quietly honoring Sam. I congratulated Chris on his Snow Creek climb and thanked him for rescuing the dog and working with Climb for Heroes. He gave me a hug, which I really needed at that point.

We met other people on the summit who specifically hiked up to honor Sam.

On Tuesday, Marilyn and I hiked up Register to Baldy. Most of Sam's memorial tribute (flowers, pictures) was still there.

Hike in Peace Sam,

Ellen

Pretty much all the memorial part of it is gone, but ongoing summiters were coming up for the hashtag. A wind had taken what was there and dispered it. I collected up the dead flowers from here or there, but anything else is probably in Fish Fork. The only item left was a note to Sam, which I put a nice sized rock on to hold it down.
