Mario Locatelli’s Handstand on Marcy

There’s not much really required in the scattering ceremony. It’s not like you have to stand on your head or anything! Mario Locatelli from Montana did stand on his head though! Mario, who is 70 and from Montana, didn’t know about the scattering. He caught up with me just above Indian Falls. He was to become a 48-state completer the following day on Mount Washington. When Mario caught up, I was hiking alone with Zephyr and was wondering whether I would complete the hike because of the snow. Mario is a mountain goat and in the snow and in personality I swore he was Jack himself! (photo by Stony Burke)
