    All I heard was what you heard. I don't know any more details than that, though. If I do hear any, I'll certainly post them...

    We were there on a camping trip with some kids from our church. The long story made short is this.
    A group of adults past us at a rest stop on the trail. We caught up with them at a busy road crossing. We chatted a bit and they road on. Within 3 minutes one my party rode up with a couple of the kids(We had 13). He decided to ride on and was just behind the adult group. Suddenly a ranger flew up the trail in his truck. Within a mile of where I and the kids were waiting, a boulder, I would guess to be as big as 2X3 ft. fell from a high rocky embankment. With no warning it hit one of the females in the adult group in the head causing "massive skull trauma" and kill her on the spot. It crushed her helmet, and cause the seatpost on her bike to break from the impact. It was very sad obviously. The Rangers and EMT's were VERY professional with the way they handle the whole situation especially with the kids. We were wondering if her name had been released the public and if there were anymore details of the accident.
    Thanks
