Missing Woman Rescued From Backcountry

Rocky Mountain National Park

National Park News

Late on Saturday evening, rangers learned that a 54-year-old Estes Park woman had not returned from a day trip into the park. A family member found her car at the Bear Lake parking lot and rangers responded. They were at the scene until after midnight but were unable to determine whether she had gone hiking or snowshoeing in the park. Early on Sunday morning, rangers searched the Nymph, Dream and Emerald Lake areas as well as trails leading to Odessa Lake. The woman was found around 10 a.m. roughly three miles up the summer trail to Odessa Lake on the north side of Flattop Mountain. She was breathing but was unconscious and unresponsive.  St. Anthony Flight for Life landed in the area within the hour and she was flown to St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood.
