    A hiker who suffered non-life-threatening injuries after tumbling about 60 feet down Mount Ascutney in Vermont says it didn't' feel like much of a drop.

    Jan Lambert of Charlestown, New Hampshire, was hiking along the Weatherfield Trail, Lower Cascade Falls, on when she slipped on ice near the edge of the waterfall and fell.

    She tells the Eagle Times she landed in a steep ravine, in water.

    Another hiker called 911 and stayed in contact. Rescuers reached the 63-year-old Lambert after several hours. She spent the night in hospital and had 12 staples in the back of her head, along with some facial cuts and bruises.

    Lambert said she wasn't scared, but was more fearful returning to the scene several days later and seeing where she had been.
