"Plan Ahead" Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument Warnings Or Dangers Tip by painterdave

This article was posted in the news Jan. 15, 2007. It reminds one to take food, and prepare for the worst when you go into the Gila Wilderness. This is not like camping at a state campground in California where there is a store nearby, showers, and firewood cut to buy. This is serious camping.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A camper who became stranded nearly five weeks ago in a national forest because she could not cross a swollen river was rescued Sunday, more than two weeks after the search for her was called off.

A New Mexico National Guard crew waded across the icy Gila River to rescue a dehydrated and weak Carolyn Dorn of South Carolina, who entered the Gila National Forest alone on Dec. 6 for a two-week camping trip.

I would think that if you want to know more about this article you can google Carolyn Dorn and it will pop up.l
