A 24-year-old Tempe woman died Sunday afternoon after falling nearly 300 feet in a canyon northwest of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Ioana Elise Hociota was hiking with a partner in Owl Eyes Canyon on the south side of the Colorado River, according to National Park Service officials.
Her husband, Andrew Holycross, said Hociota had hiked in the area before, had a back-country hiking permit and was carrying a satellite phone.
Hociota missed a check-in call on Saturday. On Sunday, he traveled to their designated pick-up point where he met her hiking partner.
