Whilst its marginally off topic I wanted to include the following post as today, aside from seeing the remarkable 1776 inscription left by the Dominguez-Escalante expedition, I also witnessed what was a truly remarkable rescue by the National Park Service of an injured rock climber who had fallen about 35 feet at Gregory Butte in Lake Powell. The team risked everything to repel down to the climber, hand winch him up to a safe point and then used two separate helicopters to firstly get him off the mountain from a very difficult position and then to take him to the nearest hospital. I can only highlight the amazing team efforts by the National Park Service and the associated organisations involved in this rescue. Photograph by Matt Wright.
