Just a week after the body of a Japanese tourist was discovered in a river in Kings Canyon National Park, another PCT hiker was found dead in Yosemite. The name and age of the woman has not yet been released, but record winter snowfall has made rivers more dangerous and routefinding more difficult than usual.
