It's that time of the year again as spring run off creates high river flows, making crossings extremely dangerous. Two hikers drowned while trying to cross a river in Rainier:
The victims, described as a Washington state couple in their 40s, were trying to cross Ipsut Creek on a log Monday morning when the woman slipped, park spokeswoman Lee Taylor said. Their hiking companion, an unidentified woman, searched for them unsuccessfully then hiked several miles, eventually running into two Park Service employees who called for help at midmorning.

ASPEN - The Pitkin County Sheriff's Office says an avalanche killed two cross country skiers Tuesday afternoon.
The two victims were among three men who were cross-country skiing five miles southeast of Aspen. The men were in an area where cross-country skiers and snowmobilers usually go, but it was not an official resort.
The avalanche buried the skiers around 2:15 p.m. on Mount Shimer. The mountain is also known as Sunshine Peak.
