Maybe because it has absolutely nothing to do with hiking, climbing, cairns, off leash dogs, passes, bikes, skiing, land use, stewardship, gear, hiking food, or anything else I can think of.

Why exactly should we care? One of the reasons for our revolutionary war was to get rid of the royalty nonsense. Ask the older residents of the the British colonies that fought for their independence during her reign how they feel about her passing.

"Should" is not an operative word here. We make note of a lot of things in the Saloon purely for ... I don't know what ... just to discuss current events and b.s. If the Brits want to support a purely ceremonial head of state who travels about doing various civic functions, well, fine. Liz 2.0 never hurt anyone. It's not like she's ... Victoria. But I get you have your tagline to uphold. clown.gif wink.gif
