Are there people hiking up on foot?

I hope that the SAR team is OK. Hoping the foot SAR team can reach him.

Travis - did he appear to sustain any other injuries from the fall? I'm really feeling for you - that must have been quite a traumatic experience!

At approximately 4:30 a deputy told me they were planning on sending one mobile (foot) and one Chopper team up. If this is the case, that foot team should be getting close.

Do we know how high up the Lake Como Rd the foot team was able to start hiking in from?

I heard they will get as far up as they can, which most likely means they will be taking a big jeep or few ATV's. Hope they were able to get up pretty high.

I hope so too! You definitely made the right decision, as hard as it had to be! My thoughts are with Kevin, SAR, and everyone involved.

Hey Travis - were you the guys up on Blanca and Ellingwood Monday? My thoughts are going out to you, Kevin, and the SAR team.
