LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- A 62-year-old Logan man has died after slipping on a canyon ledge and falling several hundred yeard to his death.

Authorities say crews found the body of Mark Baker on Friday in Dry Canyon. Baker was reported missing on Thursday by a U-S Postal Service employee who noticed Baker's mail and newspapers had piled up for two days.

Baker's Mormon bishop told authorities Baker was trying to hike a couple of miles up Dry Canyon each day in preparation for climbing to the top of Logan Peak, which has an elevation of more than 97-hundred feet.
