Former Colorado kayaker Brian Massey dies in Denali National Park

Brian Massey, a former Colorado resident and kayaker and former Mountain Miser employee, died while climbing Mount McKinley last week. Here is a link to the report from the Seattle PI:

Firefighters gather at Sea-Tac to greet fallen friend

Some of my fondest memories of paddling back in CO are with you Brian, I'll miss you for sure!!

Massey was a great person and a great outdoorsman always kind and always ready to help.

I haven't seen him in 10 years but what I remember most was how he was stoked about everything. We spent hours hanging out in our highschool's hallways talking about skiing, climbing, soccer and paddling. Then we'd go play volleyball of all things on random weeknights.

He was even there for my first run down Deckers on what was probably my third day in a kayak. An awesome guy.

We'll be thinking of you, Massey.

Sorry guys..

This must be brutal. I read about it, but didn't realize he was from around CO...

My best wishes to the family and friends.
