In Vermont, the Green Mountain Club recently lost a dynamic 37-year-old board member and extraordinary volunteer, Dave Blumenthal. The AT was one of the many long distance hiking trails that was near and dear to Dave’s heart. He will be missed.
Dave Blumenthal died on June 24, following a bicycle accident in Colorado the previous day. He was participating in the 2010 Tour Divide, a 2,780 mile mountain bicycle race from Banff to New Mexico.
A memorial service was held at GMC on July 10, 2010 at 3:30pm with sharing and a walk on the Short Trail. Dave was 37 years old, gifted, strong, kind, and generous. Some of you may have been following Dave’s amazing blog.
