Response to Lightning Fatality on French Gulch Near Breckenridge, Colorado


The hiker killed by lightning was Mary Wiper of Bowbells, ND. She was a Sierra Club employee who had recently been transfered from Montana to Albuquerque. She was hiking with a group of friends from Boulder CO who were also knocked down by the lightning. (info from highpointer Anne Barthel (friend of Mary Wiper), and Aug 2 Denver Post article and Aug 3 Boulder Camera AP article.)
