Search and Rescue Operation on Mount Morrison

On Friday, November 20, 2015, two hikers from Ventura, California, called 911 for help.  The two friends had attempted to summit Mt. Morrison just south of Mammoth Lakes, California, but reached a spot on a steep slope near the summit from where they were unable to continue either up or down.  The Mono County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team responded to the trailhead at Convict Lake and sent teams into the hikers’ location.  The Search and Rescue Teams were able to assist them down from their location and escorted them back to their campsite.

Many thanks to our Search and Rescue members, who volunteer their time and expertise to safely extricate those who are in need of assistance in the back country.
