YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, WY --
Yellowstone National Park officials say rescue crews have recovered the bodies of two Montana men who died while trying to climb a frozen waterfall below the rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. Park spokesman Al Nash says the men have been identified as 28-year-old Mark Ehrich and 29-year-old Michael Kellch, both of Bozeman.
Friends told park officials the two hadn't returned from a weekend day hike.
Rescuers found the climbers' bodies Monday on a rock ledge about 300 feet below the canyon rim. Park officials say it appears an ice column collapsed during the men's ascent.
Nash says the bodies were recovered Tuesday afternoon.
