[pct-l] Hiker Died near Mt. Hood

	Sarah Bishop, a Portland resident and experienced hiker, died
on a 4-day hike around Mt.  Hood on the Timberline Trail.  Her body
was found near where Sandy River and Rushing Water Creek join, near
the PCT.  Heavy rain, up to 10", had enlarged the streams, damaged
local trails, and washed away the bridge across Sandy River, upstream
of where the body was found.  It is assumed that Ms. Bishop fell off
the trail into the water, or was swept away when attempting to ford.
