Solo Hiker Dies on Presidentials During Extreme Weather

Kate Matrosova of New York City was found dead between Mount Madison and Mount Adams on Monday, February 16, after activating her locator beacon in the Presidentials in New Hampshire. She was alone and was planning to hike Mount Adams, Mount Jefferson and Mount Washington. Winds were reported 100 mph. Search crews could not initially search because of the extreme -30 temperature and high winds. The Boston Globe had an extremely detailed account including video of the incident. She was actually very well prepared.
