WICHITA MOUNTAINS WILDLIFE REFUGE
The Apple and the Pear are known for their apple and pear shaped boulders. There is a plaque dedicated to Dr. Phil Mitchell. Dr. Mitchell was hiking in 1992 when he fell and died.
Phil Mitchell, a 26-year-old physician intern and experienced climber, fell 40 feet down a crevice while hiking alone at Elk Mountain.
Mitchell broke bones in several places. Hundreds of rescuers searched the refuge for Mitchell, who was eventually found dead from exposure and hypothermia.
