Tragic Loss - Renee Binkley

On Monday morning, May 17, we lost one of our most beloved SAHC hikers. Our sweet Miss Renee Binkley has passed away. She will be sorely missed by all those who knew her. Renee fought a long and heroic fight against her cancer. Before she was admitted to hospice, she sent me a note and requested that her ashes be scattered around Baldy Saddle. I am thinking that during the President's Day Hike in September would be a good time to do so, and several people let's plan on it. In her note to me she also included a personal check for $2,000 made out to SAHC to show how much our hiking club meant to her. It was a most important part of her life. I am sure we will someday encounter Renee hiking on the trails 'up yonder.'
