Jake Merrill: an adventurous life
Jake Merrill: an adventurous life
Jake Heckathorn Merrill, 23, of Bellingham, died in an avalanche in the Wallowa Mountains in Oregon on February 11. He was guiding clients in a party of eight when an avalanche from above caught four of the backcountry travelers, killing Merrill and Shane Coulter, 30, of Seattle and injuring two others.
Jake was born and raised in Bellingham, studied in Western Washington University’s outdoor recreation program, worked for Backcountry Essentials and guided for Mt. Baker Mountain Guides, WWU and Wallowa Alpine Huts. He was a contributing writer to Mount Baker Experience magazine.
In 2012, Jake and two friends completed a true summit traverse of the Twin Sisters range on skis in the winter, a major mountaineering accomplishment. The riveting story Jake wrote about the adventure rings with the voice of someone who was truly passionate about the outdoors. You can read it here.
Jake boldly pursued his love of the mountains, and the fact that he died doing what he loved is a small grace in the face of a tragedy. I didn’t know Jake well, but the few times I met him at Backcountry Essentials he left a big impression on me. Vibrant and positive, with a great sense of humor, he was easy to talk to, kind and down to earth. He was the type of person I would be proud to call a friend, and his death is a major loss not only to his family and his wide circle of friends, but to the outdoor community and the community in general.
Jake is survived by his parents Glenn Merrill and Jill Heckathorn, his many aunts, uncles and cousins, and his grandma, Virginia Heckathorn of Brighton, Michigan. A celebration of Jake’s life will be held Sunday, March 2 at 2 p.m. in the Viking Union at Western Washington University, 516 High Street in Bellingham.
A scholarship at WWU has been established in Jake’s honor. Gifts can be made to the Jake Merrill Outdoor Leadership Scholarship: Online at www.wwu.edu/give (Please indicate that your gift is for the Jake Merrill Outdoor Leadership Scholarship), by phone by calling 360/650-3027 and by check with checks payable to the WWU Foundation, with “Jake Merrill Outdoor Leadership Scholarship” on the memo line. Mail checks to: WWU Foundation, 516 High Street, OM 430, Bellingham, WA 98225-9034.
The scholarship seems like something Jake would approve of, and a fitting way to honor his vibrant life. Another way to honor Jake would be to remember him when adventuring in the mountains, always have fun and always stay safe.

What are your top 2 favorite places to climb?
The Gunks, Red Rocks
Who is your climbing hero and why?
I’ve got tons of heroes. Our sport is so diverse and has such a lively history. I have always admired Charlie Porter, he put his stamp on climbing in such a powerful way and at a time when things were still wide open. Alan Watts tore into sport climbing during the eighties and early nineties in a way that was so relentless and new, he pretty much single handedly put Smith on the map. It’s hard to have started climbing when I did and not be in awe of John Bachar’s climbing, he shattered the mind barriers that led to things that Michael Reardon, Dean Potter, Alex Honnold, Will Stanhope and tons of other people have gotten in to. Lynn Hill for her grace and power and totally shattering lame preconceptions about women and climbing. Peter Croft, Rolando Garribotti, Jerzy Kukuczka, Wanda Rutkiewicz, Mugs Stump, Herb and Jan Conn…. How about Rich Romano here in the Gunks? He put up a dozen or more climbs at Millbrook that are every bit as hard, daring and beautiful as Krystal Klear, Bachar Yearian and Perilous Journey that nobody even knows about. I saw Rich the other day at like six in the morning walking up the road to the cliff with his pack on, a rope over each shoulder bandolier style, stuffing a giant garbage bag with trash he was picking up from the side of the road. That dude rocks!
What are your top 2 favorite places to ski?
Jackson Hole, Berthoud Pass
Who is your ski hero and why?
My old friend Matt because teaching skiing is the only job he’s ever had, he’s a total lifer and though he’s a big dude on skis he’s Fred Astaire.
What’s one little known fact about you?
I spent about ten years working for a business turn around firm in Boulder, CO. Sometimes I wore a tie. Right around the time I realized I had to get out of there I had a corner office on the eighth floor of a building at Interlocken in Broomfield. I could see the summit of Longs Peak, the Indian Peaks and all the way south to Pike’s from my window; so close yet so very far away!
My wife and I met at the Stage Stop Saloon in Rollinsville, CO. These days we live in the Shawangunks with our daughter, son, cat, dog and twenty chickens. I started climbing when I was a teenager and it’s been at center of my life for over thirty years. I worked for a guide service for ten years before starting my own service in January of 2016. I guide rock and ice climbs in the northeastern US, especially here in the Gunks, as well as early spring and late fall trips to Red Rocks and occasional visits to the Colorado Front Range where I lived from 1994-2003. In addition to guiding ice climbs in winter I work as a professional ski patroller at a local resort in the Catskills. I am an EMT and have volunteered on my community ambulance squad since 2006.
Most memorable guiding/instructing moment:
I climbed Epinephrine at Red Rocks with a woman that had first imagined doing the route ten years before. I have worked many days with her over the years and in a variety of places from Carstenz Pyramid to Cochise Stronghold. Her toughness and determination has always amazed me. The chimneys that guard the the more straightforward climbing above were incredibly challenging for her and yet there she was on a chill November morning scraping, grunting and groaning her way tenaciously upward. On the summit of Black Velvet Peak she thanked me and wept from the effort and joy of accomplishment. We got down to the car just as darkness settled onto the desert floor with silence and stars.

When I was 16, I needed to have jaw surgery. I was nervous, but was reassured when my dental providers answered all of my questions and talked me through what was happening step-by-step. I had to stay in the hospital overnight and I couldn’t open my jaw for 6 weeks. The recovery was difficult and uncomfortable, but I was prepared by my doctors and wasn’t scared. I learned how important clear communication is between a dentist and a patient. I strive to clearly explain care and procedures to my patients and work to help them feel at ease while in my care.”
Dr. Merrell moved around a lot growing up, which, he is now grateful for since he has become very close to his 5 siblings and has friendships/connections all over the country.

Brecken Merrill Shares Video Learning To Rope on Set
Yellowstone star Brecken Merrill gave fans his weekly dose of behind-the-scenes content.
On Sunday, August 8, the Tate Dutton actor gave “a little glimpse of everyone hanging out between scenes.” He shared video clips and photos from the set of the show. Every Sunday before the season premiere of the show, he shares some backstage photos from on the set on his Instagram account. It even features his fellow castmates and shows just what goes into creating Yellowstone.
“You can see #jakeream teaching me how to rope. #lukegrimes is there too – he’s a much better roper than I am,” he wrote alongside the clip.
He also shared a photo of him getting glammed up before they started rolling.
“And the first pic is Shannon and Andrew doing quick last-second adjustments before we shoot the scene,” he explained.
The final two photos showed him and Kevin Costner near the horses waiting to film. Fans are reminded just how much he grew in-between seasons. Tate may not be so young in Yellowstone Season 4.
See all of the action below.
What This ‘Yellowstone’ Star Has Been Up To
The 13-year-old Yellowstone actor was recently accepted into the same performing arts school as his big sister.
Additionally, casting for the Yellowstone prequel Y:1883, has Merrill quite excited. He discovered that his character’s great grandparents, James and Margaret Dutton, will be played by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. The story follows the Dutton family in their attempt to settle by crossing the Great Plains. In addition, actor Sam Elliott will play the guide, Shea Brennan.
He has recently poked fun at Yellowstone fans who keep suggesting that Tate will be in college by the time that the next season airs. He shared a photo of him edited as an old man.
Last Sunday, Merill shared a behind-the-scenes story with fans. During Season 1, fans will recall grandpa Dutton and Tate down by a local river. Tate was almost lost to the current until grandpa stepped in and saved him. For that scene, a stunt double, dummy, and Merrill were all used. He practiced in a local hotel pool before graduating to the actual river.
During the actual filming, rescuers were on hand just in case something went wrong. To keep him even more comfortable, he even got his own hot tub in the middle of the woods to warm up. But it was Kevin Costner who shocked him with his abilities.
“We should all take a moment to be thoroughly impressed with @kevincostnermodernwest in this scene,” Merrill wrote. “He had to scoop me and all of my heavy, wet layers out of the river and RUN with me through the woods for what felt like a really long distance. MORE THAN ONCE. I was 90% water and 10% donuts that day. #Johndutton is strong.”

Jake Merrill Outdoor Leadership Scholarship Fund
Jake Merrill was highly dedicated to quality outdoor leadership and the importance of education. He had a deep love and respect for everything associated with teaching others and the outdoors, so his friends made the decision to honor his life by creating the Jake Merrill Outdoor Leadership Scholarship for Western Washington University. Instead of simply asking people to make a donation, his friends are also participated in the 2014 Sea to Ski Race to encourage contributions.
Our website provided Jake’s friends with the perfect resource for collecting donations, and they were able to exceed their $2,000 goal by almost $200. This means that Jake’s memory will be honored with the scholarship fund, and students who revere learning and the outdoors as much as Jake did will have the opportunity to walk in his educational footsteps.
An important lesson that every fundraiser needs to learn is how vital it is to help others connect with their cause by providing detailed information.

Money doesn’t matter. The author of the hit I Love Rock ‘n Roll Alan Merrill dies
69-year-old British musician Alan Merrill passed away on March 29 due to complications from the coronavirus. The musician’s daughter Laura Merrill announced this on her Facebook page .
“The coronavirus took my father. I was given two minutes to say goodbye. He looked peaceful and when I left, there was still hope that his name would not appear in the news bulletins,” she wrote.
Laura Merrill also encouraged subscribers to stay at home. “Money does not matter. People die. It seems that this will not happen to you, but it happened. Stay at home, if not for yourself, then for others,” she urged.
Alan Merrill was born in New York in 1951, and 20 years later he moved to London, where he played with the group Arrows.
In 1975, Merrill co-wrote the song I Love Rock ‘n Roll with guitarist Jake Hooker. After the song was covered by singer Joan Jett in 1982, the composition became a worldwide hit.

Jett, upon learning of Merrill’s death, expressed condolences to the musician’s family on her Instagram page.
“Just learned about the death of Alan Merrill. Mentally now with his family and friends,” the singer wrote.
The outbreak of coronavirus infection COVID-19 began in December 2019 in China. On March 11, the World Health Organization declared the spread of the coronavirus a pandemic.
According to Johns Hopkins University, as of the morning of March 30, 722,435 people were infected with coronavirus in the world, the number of deaths was 33,997, and 151,991 people recovered.
90,342 In the UK, 19,874 cases of coronavirus infection were recorded, of which 1,231 were fatal. 151 people recovered.
Cover versions of songs that surpassed the original
Almost all musicians will sooner or later cover songs by other artists with more or less success.And sometimes it turns out that the rehash becomes much more popular and better known than the original performance. These covers are played on the radio, sang in the shower all over the planet, whistle in the subway and they will forever remain in the memory of the people in such a rethought and reworked form, and the names of their original authors are forgotten in favor of talented converters.
TengriMIX has collected 15 famous songs, the covers of which are stronger, more powerful, better, and sometimes just as good as the original.The list is, of course, subjective. So share your favorite covers in the comments.
1. Song “You’re in the army now”
In 1981, two Dutchmen Rob and Ferdie Bolland recorded an anti-war song about Vietnam and American soldiers. The song performed by Boland & Boland did not make a furora in the charts, and its maximum achievement was ninth place in South Africa, in the homeland of the brothers. Let’s not guess what prompted Frank Rossi, the lead singer of Status Quo, to record the song “In the Army Now”, which absolutely did not correspond to the band’s style, and even name the entire album after it, but the success turned out to be overwhelming.The group did not have such famous compositions either before or after “In the Army Now”.
2. The song “I love Rock’n’Roll”
The song “I Love Rock-n-Roll” was first performed in 1975 by musicians Alan Merrill and Jake Hooker of the Anglo-American pop-rock band The Arrows. Unlike its “prototype”, this musical greeting went almost unnoticed by the audience and did not hit any charts; the situation changed dramatically after four years.Joan Jett, a former member of The Runaways, decided to reissue the song in her performance. The single of the same name lasted seven weeks in a row at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and sold over a million copies, reaching platinum status.
3. “Wild world” song
This theme was written down in 1970 by Kat Stevens, giving followers an incredible scope for imagination and rethinking. There are dozens of covers on it, in different styles and interpretations.But for some reason it seems that the version of MR.BIG, released in 1993, is still “the best”. In any case, the world charts believed that way.
4. The song “Notning compares 2 U”
The soulful thing that brought the Irish Sinead O’Connor with her perfectly shaved skull to the top of the charts in fifteen countries in 1990 and became the most successful single of her long and fruitful career. The hit songwriter was Prince, who wrote this song for his funky side project The Family in 1985 and released (without any fury) on his debut album The Family.Subsequently, realizing the scale of the popularity of Sinead’s cover, Prince will release this composition twice on his albums.
5. The song “Behind blue eyes”
This is possibly the best song of The Who, composed by the intricate psychopath Pete Townsend, who came up with the idea of smashing instruments on stage. It was in 1971. Then the song was not popular and many have safely forgotten about it. But in 2003 Fred Durst, vocalist of Limp Bizkit, decided to cover it.This is how the song gained fame and attracted attention to the original.
6. The song “Knocking on heavens door”
Whatever hits Bob Dylan churned out, and there were many, they all gained popularity in the performance of other people. So “Knockin ‘on Heaven” suffered the same fate – the original of 1973 did not rise above 12th place on the Billboard, did not achieve anything in the performance of Eric Clapton and the Greatful Dead, but thanks to Axel Rose and Slash from Guns N’ Roses, in 1987 became No. 1 in Ireland, No. 2 in the UK and No. 12 in Australia.
7. The song “Love hurts”
The song, written by Budlo Bryant for the Everly Brothers in 1960, was already covered by Roy Orbison in 1961, and, unlike the brothers, rose with it to fifth place on the charts (albeit in distant Australia alone), in 1975 more fortunate than Jim Capaldi (fourth place in the UK, but 97th in the States). But Nazareth rose with their 1976 version: to eighth place in the States, 15th in Britain and to first in Canada, South Africa and Norway.Accordingly, it quickly became platinum.
8. The song “The man who sold the world”
The title track of David Bowie’s self-titled album is an example of glam rock that has inspired many artists, including Lulu and Richard Baron. Kurt Cobain was also a fan of the album, which led to Nirvana performing the song on MTV Unplugged. This grunge performance proved so popular that Bowie received many thanks for writing the song for Nirvana.
9. The song “The house of the rising sun”
Famous folk songs are usually rumored, but in the case of “The House of the Rising Sun” there are especially many. Alan Price of The Animals claimed that “The House of the Rising Sun” originated in sixteenth century England. However, music historians note the tradition of eighteenth-century ballads (so-called “broadside ballads”) in the song. Some of them believe that British immigrants brought it to America, and already there was a line about New Orleans.In any case, the most famous performer of the song was the rock group The Animals. The effective vocals of the soloist Eric Burdon and the incomparable musical accompaniment ensured the composition a worthy place in the hearts of music lovers.
10. The song “Unchained melody”
Back in 1955, The Platters recorded the song “Unchained Melody”, which had a certain popularity and was performed by many musicians. But the song made a real splash in 1990, sounded in the film “Ghost” performed by the Righteous Brothers.
12.Song “I will always love you”
In 1973, the most mouth-watering blonde in the American folk scene, Doley Parton, recorded a song that hit the # 1 Billboard twice, but we remember a different version from 1992’s The Bodyguard.
13. The song “All by myself”
In 1975, Eric recorded a song that sold millions of copies, which was then covered by 20 people, including Shirley Basie and even Frank Sinatra, but it became especially popular these days thanks to Celine Dion.After 1996, many tried to outshine Celine’s success, but they failed.
14. Song “Twist and shout”
This rock ‘n’ roll tune was first recorded by The Top Notes under the name “Shake It Up, Baby” in 1961. The following year, The Isley Brothers hit the pop charts for this song. However, two years later, John Lennon’s vocals raised this song to a new level, the composition took first places in the charts and to this day is found here and there.
15. Song “Without you”
Written in 1970 by Peter Ham and Tom Evans – members of the now well-forgotten band Badfinger – the song was covered by 180 completely different artists. Among the variety of options, the most popular were those performed by Harry Nilsson and Mariah Carey. But it was about the original performance that Sir Paul McCartney said that “this song is a bomb for all time.”
