Rescue chopper

Uploaded by: minnesotamom

Tucson, AZ (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: One of at least two helicopters, along with people on foot and mule riders, that spent all night and that day searching for a young man lost in the Park. Later in the afternoon he walked out on his own, 15 miles away, and called his family. He was dehydrated and suffered abrasions on his legs. I'm sure glad my sister and I were with Doug (TucsonDoug) and his wife Donna, two very experienced and competent desert and mountain hikers! The area right below the chopper is where we hiked five hours!

Peter~~yes, he's fortunate. Not long ago a woman was found deceased in this rough area. His was a happy ending.
Lynn~~I couldn't believe I made it 5 hours out there!! Lots of short breaks, and soaking my big shirt in a cold mountain stream to help cool me down, once at the spot we picnicked and again further downstream just before the water disappeared into the sand. There was so much to see, though, that it was exciting the whole way!! :-)

Doesn't look like a place to get lost in, thank God he was OK.

About minnesotamom


Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)
