After another long day of searching, and having covered a lot of ground, the tired Adventure Science team began the long trek out of the Sierras, back to civilization. The team did not find Lt. Steeves’ Jet, but ground truthed three known wreck sites near Bishop, California, and were able to offer first aid to an injured hiker they found during the search.
