MOUNT WASHINGTON, N.H.?Officials say the body of a 62-year-old hiker has been found after he apparently fell to his death on New Hampshire's Mount Washington.

Officials say hikers found the body of Wieslaw Walezak of Bedford, N.H., at 9:50 a.m. Sunday in the steep headwall area of Tuckerman's Ravine on the east side of the mountain.

Fish and Game Lt. Douglas Gralenski says Walezak apparently fell to his death, although the time and circumstances of the fall haven't been determined.

Walezak was reported missing Saturday night by his wife, who described him as an experienced hiker who knew the area well.

I always hate to hear stories like this.I guess he was hiking solo?You have to wonder if someone was with him if he would have made it or not.
