Hike Of The Week Author Karen Sykes Dies On Mount Rainier WA



Late last night, the daughter of Karen Sykes told a reporter that a body found Saturday evening on Mount Rainier was indeed that of her mother. Sykes, age 70, loved to write about hiking in the Seattle newspaper and on her personal blog. While this story is a tragedy, Sykes knew that what she was doing involved risk, but she would not let that danger stand in the way of her passion. It is not known at this time what caused her death, but more information will probably be released to the public later today.
