Lost hiker learns a lesson

Visitor thankful for how caring and giving the people of Hope are

To the beautiful kind people of Hope.

I made the mistake of taking my good friend and hostess, Lori Schofield’s, advice for granted when she told me to stay on the trail on Mt. Hope last Tuesday. I became lost because I did not heed her good advice.

Thank you to Lori and the quick response of the RCMP, search and rescue team, helicopter, ambulance, and all the folks who posted pictures on Facebook and went out looking for me, both in cars and on foot – especially Katherine and Rick Turner who never stopped until I was found.

I have deep appreciation for all your efforts!

This farm boy from Ontario sure knows how caring and giving the people of Hope really are. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
