Not a good week for teens in the mountains

This weekend, we ran a story about two teenage boys from Texas getting hit by lightning while climbing the Spanish Peaks. Yesterday, two Boulder boys had to be rescued after they decided to slide down Arapaho Glacier in the Indian Peaks. One broke his leg. Another hit his head severely. Apparently the trip down the snow field was faster than they planned.

What a beautiful thing to have such a big, wild, dangerous place as the Rockies to be young in.
