This serial is inspired by an obscure legend of the north cascade mountains, in the region just under the Canadian border. There is actually a grave marker, carved into the flattened face of a stump, along the Cascade Crest Trail near the Monument 83 fire lookout tower. For an interesting peek into a bit of mountain lore, "google" for Pasayten Pete.
My story is fictional, although it contains a great deal of autobiographical content. Which is true, and which is not, I'll leave for readers to sort out for themselves.
Much of the story is written, but not yet finished. I'll post two chapters a week, giving myself time to edit and finish this tale. I pledge to post it without interruption, two chapters per week.
