EVERETT, Wash. —

Hikers who make the 2,600-mile trek along the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada are often helped by residents along the way known as "trail angels."

A retired couple, Jerry and Andrea Dinsmore, host dozen of hikers each year at Baring, in Snohomish County.

The Daily Herald reports they helped save the life of a Japanese hiker who became bogged down in snow on what was supposed to be a five-day solo trek. The alerted authorities when he was overdue.

Snohomish County sheriff's deputies and volunteers with Everett Mountain Rescue went looking for him last week. At one point they saw tracks in the snow, but they were the tracks of a large black bear.

The hiker, Takahisa Nezu, was spotted by a helicopter last Friday and rescued.
