A WIFE plunged 200ft to her death at a beauty spot in Wyoming during a romantic hike to see the sun rise.
The husband of Callie Aust, 28, called 911 just before 6am on Tuesday to say she had fallen from Steamboat Point in the Bighorn Mountains.
Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office revealed at the time Luke Aust was unsure exactly where she was and could not determine her location due to poor cell service.
His wife’s body was located a short time later on the southwest side of Steamboat Point and was recovered by emergency crews.
It was not immediately clear why she fell, however cops say there were “no indications of foul play” and her death is being treated as accidental.
Bighorn National Forest spokesperson Sara Kirol described Steamboat Point as an abandoned fire lookout with pipe railing.
“It is not a safe barrier, but merely a remnant of the lookout tower,” she told The Sheridan Press .
“Cliff edges are unstable and there are a lot of loose rocks on the top of these high places,” she added.
