August 26, 1985

A moonless midnight camping trip by a group of former high school classmates ended in tragedy when 24-year-old Anita Babb of Lakewood slid and fell almost 200 feet to her death in the Angeles National Forest, authorities said. When the accident occurred, Ms. Babb, a heavy-set woman carrying a duffel bag weighing about 30 pounds, was walking on the First Water Trail about a mile below the Chantry Flats ranger station. Two of her companions managed to get to the bottom of the canyon, where they found her dead.
