A hiker was rescued after slipping on ice and falling 40 feet down the side of a cliff at Wahkeena Falls in the Columbia River Gorge.
Marion County Sheriff's Office search and rescue teams responded to the popular hiking area at around 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
Deputies said the 57-year-old woman caught herself on a tree as she went down the cliff. She was not seriously injured.
Firefighters said the woman and a friend were visiting from Texas.
Search and rescue workers said hiking at the falls is dangerous right now due to icy conditions.
