Ten hikers recently had to be rescued after being stranded by high water in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
According to New Hampshire Fish and Game officials, the hikers became stranded between two overflowing brooks in the White Mountain National Forest on Friday.
The group had planned to spend Friday night at the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Zealand Falls hut, but were unable to reach it after being trapped by the overflowing brooks.
The hikers called for help around 5 p.m., and a rescue team led by Mountain Rescue Service reached them at around 10:45 p.m. The rescuers helped them cross a brook and reach the AMC’s Highland Center at roughly 1:30 a.m. on Saturday.
