My family and I had the recent troubling experience of trying to help a man 
who had a heart attack on the trail.  Nothing about his appearance would tell 
you he was out of shape.  In fact, his hiking boots were well worn.  After 
CPR failed and the rescue by EMT's appeared futile, we quietly left the wife 
and son to grieve their loss.  

You must know your limitations and be prepared to accept your fate.  True, it 
was a beautiful place to leave this life, but a sad and possibly premature 
departure  as far as his family was concerned.
