Search for hiker ends with grim discovery

July 30, 2012

Search and rescue crews have located what they believe to be the body of missing San Rafael hiker Thomas Heng, 31.
Inyo County Deputy Coroner Jeff Mullenhour said he expected to positively identify the body and possibly establish a cause of death before the end of the day Friday, but that information was not available as of press time.
A multi-agency search effort was initiated Monday morning after Inyo County authorities were notified that Heng had not returned for a solo hike to Mt. Langley that afternoon.

Lake Sabrina
Our nice relaxing, normal, everyday days were back at Lake Sabrina. Thank goodness!
No hail, no rain, no thunder and lightning, no mules being startled, no rock slide – although there were a couple of rock slides on Mt. Haeckel (covering part of the glacier in the Sabrina Basin) and around Picture Peaks along with reports of numerous other rock slides in the back country.
