Trapped on Aspen Mountain – No Way Down, No Way Up
Out hunting for the day on horseback in late September, four friends get separated after winding down the steep descent on Aspen Mountain, the friends decide to split up to find which route down will take them to the bottom. Two make it. Two do not. Their path ends in a cliff. There is no way down, and no way back up. Too steep for the horses. Not prepared for the bitter cold that night nor the approaching storm, they work hard together to keep from freezing. When daylight returns, they must find a way home before they are trapped in the brewing storm, never to find their way back.
