I knew Galen pretty well, he spent quite a few of his trips up here in NW Montana, not some of his best published works, other than twin falls, Barbara was the pilot when the plane went down..I get very mixed when I see these types of articles published, Galen was an adventure thrill seeking adrenaline junky and would fully admit it around a table in Mooses pizza joint, he did what he did for the high...
He is missed, but it is sad, that many have not really understood and got to know him and what he really loved, yes he had a very high opinion of himself and what he did, most of us do!, but how many of us, are willing to hang off the side of a mountain about 10 thousand feet above the floor of the canyon to capture a sunrise?
Galen was a great guy, full of life and full of spirit, he is missed in the groups I run with..
