Proposal on Colorado peak leads to couple's altitude issues

Proposal on Colorado peak leads to couple's altitude issues

Joshua Mason and Katie Davis, both from Texas, hiked up Jasper Peak in Colorado on Saturday.

A Texas man went a bit too far in his quest for the ideal marriage proposal: Joshua Mason, 27, and Katie Davis, 28, ended up in "a serious situation" and having to be rescued by authorities.

Mason was hoping to find an "isolated scenic location" along the 8.2 mile hike that has an elevation gain of over 3,000 feet to the almost 13,000 foot summit, and he did.

Mason was able to find the flawless spot and proposed to Davis.

One of those campers then hiked down from Diamond Lake to her auto at the 4th of July Trailhead and drove to Nederland, arriving just after 2 a.m.to call 911.

After hiking more than 8.2 miles and ascending 3,000 feet to the almost 13,000-foot summit, the newly engaged couple discovered the carefully planned engagement took an abrupt turn.

The newly-engaged couple from Denton, Texas, had gotten a late start to their mountain climb - they started hiking at about noon - so by the time they were ready to head back down, it was already getting dark.

"As it started getting dark, there's no trail to see".

They were not equipped for cold weather or to camp overnight and they only had a little water. "It's not clearly marked", Boulder County Sheriff Mountain Deputy Dan Walter said.

The two became disoriented and lost. "By the grace of God, (the camper) happened to be hiking by where he could hear them".

Another hiker came upon the couple and led them to a group of his friends who were camping at Diamond Lake, KCNC reported.

Both were showing signs of altitude sickness and severe dehydration, so one of the campers hiked down the trail and drove to Nederland for cell service in order to call 911.

"They had come down a ridge line and cliffed-out". The campers let Mason and Davis warm up in their tent and offered them food and water.

A paramedic located the campers at Diamond Lake around 4:30 a.m. Fortunately, their condition had improved significantly, and they were able to walk down the trail with assistance from Rocky Mountain Rescue Group personnel.

'He determined that Mason and Davis needed to move to a lower altitude immediately, ' the Boulder County Sheriff's Office said.

"Deputies determined that the couple's engagement was still on, despite the memorable ordeal".
