Accident on NORTH CASCADES Mount Baring

A DEADLY ONE

A dusting of snow on Mount Baring with the lake at its base
IT IS BEAUTIFUL UP THERE. I LOVE THE PLACE.

An extreme sports enthusiast was killed during a failed BASE jump near Washington’s Mount Baring…”

BASE is an acronym for parachuting from a building, antenna, span (such as a bridge) or earth (such as a cliff.)

A search and rescue team found the man’s parachute on the north side of the mountain later that day but couldn’t locate the parachutist in the rugged tree-covered terrain…”

The next day searchers found his body. Only 23 years old
