Last night, just after midnight we noticed a helicopter approaching the Southeast side of Mt. Si. He flew a number of approaches to a specific spot, about three quarters up the mountain, where a light could be seen. After a number of approcahes the helicopter turned on his search light and flew a number of approaches to the spot with the light. At times he hovered very close to the side of the mountain, but never seemed to lower any rescue basket or rescuers. Eventually he left the scene, leaving only the light on the mountain behind. This morning he returned around ten o'clock and this time he hovered for a few minutes each time he approached the spot. This is when I took my pictures. Again, there was no rescue basket visible. However, in daylight he closed in on the site to the point where he partially disappeared behind some of the rocks and trees. Pretty interesting flying. No idea what he was trying to do, but guess it was some sort of rescue effort.
Possible rescue on Mt. Si
