Hey Steve, did Bob keep hiking up until he passed away?

We encountered someone who looks very similar (although thinner) going up via Shepherd Pass a year or two ago.

He was talking about Golden Trout fish size records and difficult/secret to get to fishing spots... and that it was cheating because Rainbow Trout were introduced and they intermingled.

Fun chat on the trail, but the next morning as I was packing my gear I swear I saw the same guy hiking up again through Shepherd Pass, this time with a partner.
