VERLOT, Wash. – The 41 year-old Ellensburg woman who was stuck at 4,000 ft in Headlee Pass was safely rescued last night with her two dogs.   She was reached by a member of the helicopter rescue crew who helped her make the ascent on foot.  They all arrived at the base camp around midnight.  One crew member was slightly injured during the operation when a large boulder came loose and struck him, but his injuries are minor.
