Body of Seattle man recovered from trail in Cascades

GRANITE FALLS, Wash. (AP) — A mountain rescue team has recovered the body of a Seattle man who fell through an ice bridge on the Gothic Basin trail in the North Cascades. The Herald reports the 30-year-old man had been hiking Friday afternoon about three miles from a trailhead at Barlow Pass, when he tried to cross the ice bridge, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. He fell through, and then ice and snow boulders fell on top of him. Search and rescue teams found him that night, but couldn’t recover his body because of dangerous conditions. On Wednesday, the sheriff’s office and Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue recovered the man’s body.
