Woman carried off trail
A 63-year-old woman with a school group fell Friday and twisted her ankle while hiking on the Upper Monument Canyon Trail, according to Nick Myers, acting chief of interpretation at Colorado National Monument.
Due to the steepness of the terrain and out of concern for the safety of emergency personnel, the woman was carried out along Lower Monument Canyon.
The Mesa Country Sheriff’s Department and Lower Valley Fire District personnel assisted park rangers in carrying the woman out of the monument.
