We were graced with an amazing day to climb Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain in the Adirondacks to honor Shaun’s memory on August 10, 2018. Just a handful of friends joined me to let fly some of Shaun’s ashes from the fire tower.
The humidity that was dogging us lifted overnight after a dramatic late night thunderstorm. The trail was dry and gorgeous and sparsely traveled when we headed out on our hike up the newly, and beautifully rebuilt old trail.
Chocolate and coffee were passed around at the summit in Shaun’s honor and then I climbed the fire tower alone to scatter ashes to the four directions. After a few private minutes others joined me…
We watched from the tower as six hawks circled the summit and performed acrobatics through the clouds. We all felt Shaun’s spirit soaring above and around us.
Karen’s dog Finn also made a special connection with the young summit steward!
It’s just the beginning of this release of ashes, memories and love for our sweet friend. I hope you can join me for a million more tributes. Love to all… Hug each other.
