The woman reportedly tumbled about 20 feet when a boulder came loose, and died of injuries sustained when rock then fell on top of her about 8 p.m.

She died at the scene shortly thereafter with family members at her side.

Search and rescue workers from both San Juan and Grand counties responded to the incident, just inside the San Juan County line.

No other injuries were reported.
