After summiting with their team on Friday, Aaron Mainer and Max Lurie were on their way down the Muir Snowfield when they came across a hiker with an ankle injury. They carried her to a comfortable location and then waited for additional manpower from the National Park Service. They stayed and assisted the rangers with her evacuation, returning late to Paradise. Not too late, however, to capture this interesting lighting on Mt. Rainier.
