So everyone is buying that this guy went up there to die by starvation on purpose? Interesting method I don't think most people choose such a slow, agonizing suicide.
He's up at Glacier lake, which runs right on the PCT and just chooses to die? I'd assume that SAR didn't make it more than a few miles from Stevens Pass in a typical search area (5 air miles from base area at Stevens to the lake).
I'd think an equally irrational thought is that someone would go out into the cascades in late october with the goal being suicide through starvation and exposure?
When faced with such a grim outcome the will to live has to come out, that's why most people choose a quick, effective method of suicide.
Anyways would be curious what the coroner's report says, did he leave his vehicle unlocked? What was left at his home?
Just a strange set of circumstances, especially since that lake is at most a 2 day out and back, not to say that it would have been a likely search location as SAR probably focused closer to his last known wherabouts.
People experiencing a mental health crisis typically aren't thinking about long term consequences. This guy might have wanted to just escape whatever was troubling him. From there, it's easy to run into trouble in the wilderness when you're not thinking rationally.
