BEND, OR -- A Terrebonne woman was rescued from the Three Sisters Wilderness west of Bend, after she was injured while hiking, Tuesday evening. 

 

Suzanne Smither called 9-1-1 just before 7 p.m. to report she'd fallen a short distance off a log bridge and was not able to walk the two and a half miles back to the trailhead. The 67-year-old told dispatchers she had been hiking the Green Lakes Trail with her husband and had food, water and a tarp for warmth.

 

A dozen Deschutes County Search and Rescue volunteers responded to the area, stabilized Smither and wheeled her back to the couple's car parked at the trailhead by 11 p.m. She declined any further medical attention.
