Yosemite National Park has suffered its second fatality in recent days.
Rangers say the body of 23-year-old Christopher Hale of Gainesville, Fla., was found by officials on Monday afternoon, two days after a San Ramon man died in the park.
Hale had been missing since Sunday morning, and rangers said he appeared to have fallen from a cliff above Mirror Lake in the eastern portion of Yosemite Valley.
Hale was training with the park's concessionaire, DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite, Inc., and was scheduled to start work later this summer. His exact cause of death is under investigation.
