    This is just crazy -- I'm glad these women were found okay, but it is only one of several incidences that happen every summer here in our mountains/deserts. We were hiking in California a couple of months ago, didn't know the area, but we stayed on the main, well marked trail just so we didn't get lost. I'm sure the area would have been beautiful and challenging off trail, but you couldn't even see the trails 20 feet from the main trail. I wouldn't have taken any chances of hoping to be able to find my way back, because I didn't know the area. Why hikers, and most of them experienced hikers, take this chance is beyond me. It is so easy to get disoriented, especially in a place you don't know.
