Found. Saw him talking with the search team in the basin. Didn't seem to be injured either which is good news.

Glad to hear it. It would be nice to know the "rest of the story". Where is Paul Harvey when you need him?  :eusa_eh: :icon_biggrin:

UPDATE: Lost hiker has been found! Mr. Lopez spent 2 unplanned nights in the backcountry where he took a wrong turn and then lost the trail after intense thunderstorms turned the path into a flowing creek. Eventually he found his way back to his route and searchers located him while hiking out. 13 search personnel and our park plane were assisted in this operation by a Customs & Border Protection air and marine division helicopter. We thank everyone who helped with the search and provide information and are overjoyed to close this incident with a happy ending!

Hooray! Thanks for the background, Jalco. So glad this ended well.
