Search and Rescue


What Search and Rescue wished we knew!

I came across this article in the Seattle Backpackers' online magazine.

In a story by Erika Klimecky the key topics that SAR wished we knew and would follow are discussed.

This is a fine post..

"Of course Search and Rescue hopes, as much as you do, that you never have to meet them in the backcountry. Still, once you know who they are and what they do, it’s just as important to be responsibly prepared when you go out into the wilderness. And yes, Si, Tiger and Cougar mountains, count as wilderness. Our weather, mountains and conditions in this area make for potentially problematic wilderness situations even 45 minutes from downtown Seattle."
