An inspiring and tragic story. This happened at least two years ago.

One particularly chilling note: The hikers initially found the girl when they were taking snaps of each other. You can see the happy hikers in the foreground, unaware that there’s a critically injured young woman in the background. The hikers only found her because she had dyed her hair bright red.

It reminds me of the story I linked to a short time ago about the family dog that mauled and killed a newborn baby.

The people involved made stupid mistakes, and paid an unjust price.

When I read about these incidents, I don’t feel superior, or any animosity toward the victims. I think “there but for the grace of God.” Because I do stupid, dangerous things too. Don’t you?
