SISTERS, OR -- A Bend woman was injured while hiking the Black Butte Trail, west of Sisters. Deschutes County Search and Rescue teams were dispatched at about 1 p.m., Wednesday, after 30-year-old Kendra Owens slipped on ice, less than a mile from the trailhead. 

 

Rescuers reached Owens at about 2:20 p.m. and stabilized her injury before wheeling her out to waiting medics who transported her to St. Charles Bend.
 
The Sheriff’s Office warns that hikers can experience dry ground, ice and snow on the same trail, this time of year. They urge recreators to be prepared for a wide range of trail conditions.
