RCMP say a 30-year-old Calgary woman has died of injuries she suffered in a fall while hiking Saturday afternoon.

Police say the woman was with two friends when she slipped and fell while descending a short scramble section on the east end of Mount Rundle – a mountain just south of Canmore, Alta.

They say visibility in the area was poor at the time due to heavy smoke from wildfires raging in British Columbia.
