Safely off trail thanks to helping hands

Dear Editor:

I wish to thank all the hikers who came to my assistance this past Sunday afternoon when I experienced an acute vertigo episode on Lower Lost Man Loop, especially Arabella from Mountain Rescue who stayed with me, and encouraged me to hang on, until the Flight for Life helicopter arrived. Thanks also to Michael who assisted Arabella, and both of whom tried to get me some way down the trail when I could hardly walk.

I felt that everyone who stopped to help was a guardian angel for me – I am eternally grateful.

Ann Mitchell
