PINKHAM NOTCH, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Fish and Game officers have come to the aid of three hikers who stopped on a Mount Washington trail when it got too dark.
The hikers from Maine were guided down Tuckerman's Ravine Trail on Monday night after calling 911.
They were identified as 70-year-old John Reinsborough and his wife, 67-year-old Elizabeth Reinsborough, both of Readfield, and their friend, 71-year-old Nancy Russell of Kents Hill.
The Fish and Game Department said the hikers were not carrying any lights.
