Butch Wiggs

After the end of his 5th season running the Vermillion Valley Ranch, Wiggs died on January 25, 2001 from an apparent suicide.

Over the last few years Butch has developed solid reputation among PCT thru-hikers. Many of whom looked forward to a few relaxing days off at VVR after hiking through the Sierra Mountains.

His presence along the trail will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
