The article you posted doesn't match the description you gave.

The attack in the article was was not in Kennedy Meadows, it was in a
gas station in Pearsonville, on HWY 395, the highly traveled road
between Mammoth Lakes, and Los Angeles. The victim in the article was
an employee of the gas station, not a visitor from Florida.

It is a shame that he was attacked, but i'm glad he is OK, and that
they caught the perp.

> Please see article below.  The person stabbed at Kennedy Meadows is a dear friend through the Florida Trail Association.  Russ (age 67) had driven his truck with slide-in camper from Orlando to Kennedy Meadows to acclimate before his permitted hike of the John Muir Trail.  He was so excited about this hike and trip, even being thrilled that he had a camping permit for Kennedy Meadows.  He is okay, but had to have more than 100 stitches.  His girlfriend here reports that he's elated because he survived the attack.  Not sure yet if he's still going to try the hike.
