Another Overdue PCT Hiker

April 15, 2023
Palm Oasis – Windy Point Ridge

Written by: Raymond Weden.

At approximately 0200 hours on we received a call for a solo hiker in the Windy Ridge Area north of Palm Springs who was unable to find the route back down due to nightfall. As Matt and I arrived at the command post, we received word that the CHP’s H60 Helicopter was able to locate the hiker and hoisted them on board. We watched H60 land before going home.
