Inyo SAR Incident 6/3

Post by maverick » Mon Jun 04, 2018 11:04 am

Inyo Sheriff's Dept:
Inyo SAR, Inyo County Sheriff's Office, and H-82 were at it again today. This time it was Mirror Lake on the Whitney Trail at approximately 10,700 ft. An injured hiker with several medical issues was assisted off the mountain.

As the busy hiking season begins in the Sierra’s, please take necessary precautions, be prepared, and know your limitations.
