Stranded Snowboarders Rescued

  SEATTLE (AP) - Two snowboarders who spent two nights stranded on Mount Rainier after getting lost in a snowstorm are on their way down.
 
     National Park spokeswoman Lee Snook says the two are snowshoeing out with rescuers who reached them Tuesday morning. 
 
     Snook says 21-year-old Derek Tyndall and 20-year-old Thomas Dale didn't appear to have any injuries.
 
     The two had been stuck on Washington's tallest mountain since Sunday, after getting lost in whiteout conditions and digging a snow cave for protection.
 
     Rescuers first spotted them Monday but couldn't immediately reach them because of darkness and avalanche danger.
 
     Snook says the group should be at the Paradise ranger station by late afternoon.
