On Aug. 18, I slipped on a boulder while hiking on Aasgard Pass, suffered a concussion and sustained a deep forehead laceration. After decades of hiking, this was my first serious hiking accident and I could not have been in better hands. I was with a group of friends on our annual hike in the Cascades. After my fall, my friends tracked down U.S. Forest Ranger Adam Greenstreet, who stayed by my side the rest of the afternoon.
