Overdue Hiker Rescued

The park and California Highway Patrol began an aerial search for an overdue 54-year-old hiker on the morning of Wednesday, November 16th. Searchers determined that the man had planned a five-day trip in Sequoia National Park, beginning at the Wolverton parking lot and ending in the Black Kaweah/Big Arroyo area. During the search, an orange tent was spotted by the CHP helicopter along the expected route. They found the hiker there and flew him back to the park's Ash Mountain helibase. He was in good physical condition despite having encountered challenging snow and avalanche conditions in the backcountry.
