Wilderness Rescue:
On July 17 at 12 p.m., North-South Lake Campground staff received a call reporting an 83-year-old man had fallen while hiking the escarpment trail near Layman's Monument. Forest Ranger Gullen, along with AFRs France and Lasselle, responded on foot. The hiker from Maryland had fallen approximately six feet down a rock scramble and received multiple abrasions to his torso and arms. AFR France treated the wounds while Ranger Gullen medically evaluated the hiker. No other injuries were present, and the subject was able to walk out under his own power. The group walked out approximately half a mile and the hiker was given a courtesy ride to his vehicle where he declined further medical treatment. All were clear of the scene at 2:15 p.m.
