Woman Evacuated From Mt. Glory

July 16, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
07-16 rescue

A Tennessee woman was evacuated from the side of Mount Glory Saturday evening after falling and injuring her leg.  Teton County Search and Rescue President Tim Ciocarlan says Melissa Stockstill of Germantown, Tennessee (who also has a vacation residence here) had been hiking with her husband and two sons, and slipped while descending the mountain.  Her injuries prevented from continuing down on her own power and members of the rescue team were summoned to help.  Curiously, the team was already elsewhere on the pass conducting routine training on a very similar scenereo.  Ciocarlan says 16 team members along with other volunteers responded and brought Stockstill down to the road with the aid of a wheeled litter and ropes.  From there, she was taken to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
