A Croatian woman climber on Denali, with no apparent sickness or injury, demanded air evacuation from North America's highest mountain.
For six days she was in a stand-off with rangers who, naturally, had refused her request. They did, however, give her a tent, food and water.
The whole story from the Anchorage Daily News makes astonishing reading, and you have to feel for the poor rangers.
When the ranger in charge presented her with a $5000 bill, she called him a "big jerk" and apparently left the country without paying.
