WEST GLACIER, Mont. — Officials with Glacier National Park have released the name of a Washington state man who died in a fall on a closed trail.
Park spokeswoman Denise Germann says 64-year-old Charles Fred Huseman of Packwood, Wash., died Wednesday afternoon from trauma suffered in a fall from the Highline Trail, which is closed due to snow.
Witnesses told park rangers that Huseman was hiking the trail when he slid on a snow field and fell about 100 feet, landing along the Going-to-the-Sun Road about a mile west of Logan Pass. Huseman died at the scene.
The weather that afternoon included sun, rain, hail and gusty winds.
