    Gosh so it sounds like she was just really really lost. I want to know exactly how that happened. Why did she go off the trail? Accidentally? And she has a fractured leg—yikes! I wonder if that happened after she was lost or did the injury cause her to go off trail and get lost? I’m SO curious about all of it, but mostly just so overjoyed that she’s ok. I hike a lot in CO, and I am just dying to know how this kind of thing happens!!!

    I am sure she will be STRONGLY encouraged to bring a GPS device on future hikes. And a phone.

    How cool would it be for Amanda to say something on here. And has that ever happened? (A missing person to respond on own thread after found). “I got chills they’re multiplying”. Lol.

    AMAZING NEWS!
    That video had me in tears.

    What a wonderful story of survival that she will get to tell!

    They never lost hope for her. Maybe she felt that!

    I think she fell and was stuck in a ravine....even with GPS that can easily happen.

    And her mother also said she had a fracture. But self-treated because she was a physical therapist. From your link

    ETA deleted pictures as I think it's against terms of service to post photographs from Facebook, even if it is an official one?

    True. She got into trouble and that can happen to anyone.

    The point, when prepared for a possible serious emergency, a gps would have given her location and LE & rescuers could see who she was, with any info she preset in about herself w/ location coordinates. A rescue within hours.

    Could we help Chris by petitioning his employer?

    I’d be more inclined to boycott than petition. Any employer that would terminate rather than provide leave of absence doesn’t deserve to have Chris back. And with this level of high profile publicity?!!! They behaved like total @ssholes!!!

    Oh, gitana1, I'm so glad you were in on this victory! You, like many of us, probably didn't know her, her boyfriend, or her family and friends, but you were hoping for a good ending with all of us, although with each day, it seemed more and more unlikely.
    A Victory!!
    This is one all of us can celebrate. We get so few sips at "the good stuff," but this is one sweet sip!
