Many of us have stumbled upon the Daniel M. Casey memorial at the top of Big Blue, between the ski area and the weather observatory and wondered about this inscription:

Daniel M. Casey
October 20, 1968 – July 25, 1994
With such a comrade, such a friend, I fain would walk till journey’s end, through summer sunshine, winter rain, and then? Farewell, we shall meet again! – Henry Van Dyke

While the staff at the Department of Conservation and Recreation thoroughly searched their records for information on who Daniel M. Casey was or what his connection was to this site, they have found nothing.

Do you know the story of the Daniel M. Casey and the memorial?
