James Welton on Wheat Thin, City of Rocks

I met and climbed with James this June in the City of Rocks, Idaho. After his sudden, tragic death recently, I wrote a quick story about him on my blog.

I got so many responses to this, and questions and comments from people who knew him that I decided to post another obituary.


James on Wheat Thin

When a friend dies, at first I feel like there’s nothing I can do and I’m terribly sad and try to reconnect with friends still living. However, in this case, I thought that I could share some photos I took of James so that other friends of his would have those photos to remember him by.

Every person I talked to told of how kind and helpful James had been, and how positive and enthusiastic he was. He will be missed. I’m glad people who read my earlier post found it helpful.

I wish I could do more.

  1. The images show his joy in doing what he loved. As the saying goes, a pictures is worth a thousand words — so you have posted the equivalent of four thousands words, which is a grand tribute.
