Fish and Game officers rescued two Ohio hikers from a trail on Mount Washington Thursday night because the pair didn’t have flashlights.
The husband and wife, Robert Scanlon and Candy Neville – both in their mid-60’s - from Shaker, Heights Ohio, rode the Mount Washington Cog Railway to the top of Mount Washington, Fish and Game Lt. Wayne Saunders said in a news release.
Then, they decided to hike down on the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail.
But Scanlon began having knee pain on the rocky trail, slowing their descent and it got dark before they could reach the bottom.

Paul Grenier, the mayor of Berlin, one of three Coos Country Commissioners and an advocate of the Northern Pass was a lonely guy Wednesday evening at the U.S. Department of Energy’s third public hearing on the project.
Grenier walked through a sea of orange to reach the podium.
There were about 350 people gathered at the Mountain View Grand Resort and most wore orange, a symbol of their opposition to Northern Pass.
The U.S. Department of Energy held its second “scoping” hearing on Northern Pass’s amended route last night in Plymouth. Opponents criticized not only the hydro-electric project but the federal agency.
