ASHFORD -- High winds have delayed attempts to recover the body of a park ranger who who fell to his death during a rescue operation high on Washington’s Mount Rainier.
Mount Rainier National Park spokeswoman Nancy Stimson says officials initially thought the clear weather and lower avalanche risk would allow searchers to recover the body of 33-year-old Nick Hall on Thursday, but the winds prevented any such attempt.
Searchers will try to recover the body when the weather allows.
Hall was originally from Patten, Maine. He fell 2,500 feet on June 21 on the Emmons glacier after helping rescue four climbers from Waco, Texas. Three of those climbers spent a week at Madigan Army Medical Center before being released Thursday.
The fourth climber was not injured.
