Woman, 28, plunges 200ft to her death on romantic sunrise hike with husband

A 28-year-old woman plunged 200ft to her death during a romantic hike to see the sunrise with her husband in Wyoming, US.

Callie Aust had fallen from Steamboat Point in the Bighorn Mountains shortly before 6am on Tuesday morning when her husband Luke called 911 after he couldn't find her.

Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office revealed at the time that her husband could not determine her location due to poor cell service, but she was located a short time later on the southwest side of Steamboat Point.

It was not immediately clear how she fell but police believe there were “no indications of foul play” and are treating her death as accidental.

Bighorn National Forest spokesperson Sara Kirol told The Sheridan Press that Steamboat Point is an abandoned fire lookout with pipe railing.

She explained to the publication: “It is not a safe barrier, but merely a remnant of the lookout tower.

“Cliff edges are unstable and there are a lot of loose rocks on the top of these high places.

“Standing or sitting near or on the edge of cliff faces is very risky, no matter the location.”

Callie's employer Bought Beautifully posted a tribute following her death, it read: "Her life was a literal example of living out love…she did this exceptionally well, shining God's love and truth through her everyday actions with deep conviction and focused intention.

"She loved her family with every ounce of her being…she was everyone's biggest fan, a ready listener and wise counsellor."
