Written by on August 10, 2017

Grand Teton National Park rangers have rescued two men who got lost and became stranded while descending Mount Moran.
The National Park Service says 58-year-old Ron Sloot of Colfax, Washington and 35-year-old Geoff Mitchell of Spartanburg, South Carolina called for help about 2 a.m. Tuesday. The two had summited the 12,605-foot Mount Moran around 4:30 p.m. Monday but took a wrong turn on their way down.
Separately, rangers on Monday also helped another man who had slipped and fell on a snow field in Garnet Canyon. The man had minor injuries.
