A 50-year-old Colorado woman took a 40- to 50-foot fall while hiking with a family member on the north side of Deer Mountain on the afternoon of Saturday, September 29th. Rangers reached her just after 8 p.m. that evening and determined that she did not survive the fall. Her body was found in steep, rocky terrain about three miles from the Deer Mountain trailhead. The body was flown out the following afternoon and turned over to the county coroner.
