    Default Remembering Ray Evans

    For the greater part of the twentieth century, Ray Evans was a well known and highly regarded White Mountain historian and denizen of the mountains of New Hampshire. Windswept ran a piece about Ray following his death in 2001 and I wrote a brief story about him in 2007. He loved the White Mountains unconditionally, and his life shines a beacon on an integral part of their modern history.

    I recently received an email from Courtney Evans Simpson, the granddaughter of Ray Evans. She had stumbled across my story about Ray on the Internet and she was grateful that I had taken the time to remember him. Because of her words, I thought I would share her letter and my original story with you here on the Forums as a way to remember Ray; perhaps bring a smile to the face of anyone that knew him or introduce a not long-departed legend to a new generation of hikers in the White Mountains.

    Letter from Courtney Evans Simpson

    Myths can't be translated as they did in their ancient soil. We can only find our own meaning in our own time. -Margaret Atwood, writer (1939-)
