Who says 14er season is over?
(AP) - -- A 23-year-old Missouri man has been found alive after disappearing in Colorado's Holy Cross wilderness two days earlier.
Rescuers say Jacob Gatley of Lee's Summit had no life-threatening injuries when he was found Monday, despite enduring wintry weather.
He and his brother reached the summit of the 14,005-foot Mount of the Holy Cross on Saturday but became separated on the way down.
Gatley was wearing only jeans, a fleece garment, a rain jacket and tennis shoes and carried only water and an energy bar. The area has received up to a foot of snow since Saturday.
