The bodies of Carlin Brightwell and Ryan Marcil were found at the base of Capitol Peak’s north face on Tuesday by search and rescue teams who had been notified that the hikers were past due to return home.


The couple, both in their late 20’s, had just moved in together in downtown Aspen. Reporter Alycin Bektesh spoke with friends of the couple, and brings us this memorial.
