    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Wow, four people missing since Saturday. And they didn't start searching until Monday. Prayers for strength and guidance for those searching.

    Two hiking groups claim they spoke to Dustin on the trail Saturday and he told them they were hiking to Dollar Lake.

    Teams from La Plata County Search & Rescue began searching early Monday morning. A helicopter from Flight for Life flew over the area during the morning. In the afternoon a Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad helicopter continued the air search. Four K-9 teams were also a part of the search.

    Thank goodness (from the first link)
    Authorities plan to request a National Guard helicopter with infrared or other night searches if the group isnít located by dusk.

    The father and three young children who had been lost in the Weminuche Wilderness Area since Saturday were found on Monday evening, according to the La Plata County Sheriff's Office.

    Authorities are working to assess their conditions.

    This family must be so thankful to have been contacted by another group of hikers, who guided them to the Pine River Trail and Pine River Trailhead. They were out there two nights. Nighttime temps drop to mid 50's so they probably huddled together for warmth. Daytime temps near 90. If they were without water they were getting pretty thirsty although afternoon thunderstorms may have provided some much needed water.

    I love CO and that area is beautiful; I'm so glad they were
    found alive.

    Ditto. When I saw "Middle Mountain", I immediately looked at the rest of the header to see if it was Colorado.
