MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK, Wash. (AP) – A hiker died last week while scrambling up a peak in Mount Rainier National Park.
The Tri-City Herald reports the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office identified him as 41-year-old Robert Michael Moll of Rowley, Massachusetts.
Moll was a journalist and the author and editor of two books, “The Art of Dying” and “What Your Body Knows About God.”
Park rangers were notified on July 19 that a man had fallen about 100 feet off Barrier Peak near Owyhigh Lake. A rescue team went to the peak and found Moll dead.
A helicopter airlifted him to the White River area, where he was turned over to medical examiners.
