A 28-year-old woman died on Tuesday after falling 200 feet off the top of Steamboat Point, a well-known peak from the Bighorn Mountains, a Wyoming mountain range, while on a planned hike with her husband to see the sunrise, according to the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office identified the woman as Calli Aust. Her husband told authorities he didn’t know where Aust was after she fell off Steamboat Point around 5:50 a.m. MT. Emergency personnel began arriving to the area about 6:30 a.m. to search for Aust.

Forty-five minutes later, rescuers found Aust dead at the base of the southwest side of Steamboat Point.
