National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis a short time ago released a statement about the death of Mount Rainier National Park climbing ranger Nick Hall.

“Nick Hall died while he carried out a climbing ranger’s greatest responsibility – saving lives,” Jarvis said. “That fact will give us comfort in the future, but not now. Our thoughts and prayers are with Nick’s family and our National Park Service family at Mount Rainier National Park. They bear too great a burden today, and we will do everything in our power to support them as they have been thrown into the depths of loss yet again.”
