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.
