PARK COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) — A Denver-area couple walked out of the wilderness as the sun came up Saturday – cold, wet, tired, hungry.
The couple, Dave and Heather Skillman, set out last Sunday for a three-day excursion. Miles into the journey, they lost the trail in the snow and veered into unfamiliar terrain.
“It was a massive undertaking,” Sheriff McGraw said. “Three days, thirty-five to forty people over those three days. They’re all at home sleeping now.”
Park County Search and Rescue and the Park County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Teller County Search and Rescue, Alpine Search and Rescue, Douglas County Search and Rescue, and the Lake George and Hartsel fire departments.
