Dick is collapsed in the forest. Birds gather around him and his camera.
Spoiler alert. I think the Aids deaths were sadder. This is more farce than tragic. At his age he should have had a companion. He could have been killed by a wild animal, shot by hunters, or catastrophic injury. Before being paralyzed Id hike and first rule was the buddy system and being in good shape. Im sad for Lacey but he went as he wanted.
