Miracle on Pikes Peak: The Incredible Story of a Dog Who Was Rescued from the Mountain


On the weekend, a rescue team helped a hiker who was accompanied by his four-legged dog get down a Colorado mountain. The dog, who was not dressed for trekking, had been separated from its owner and was attempting to descend the mountain on its own. The rescue team was able to locate the dog, get him down from the mountain before he got hurt, and then return him safely to his owner.

The El Paso County Search and Rescue team shared a photo of Roland, a black and white dog, on a stretcher on Facebook. In the caption, rescuers said that they had been called out to help the pup down from Barr Camp. Roland was clearly tired from his adventure, but he was safe and sound thanks to the hard work of the rescue team.

Our team was called out early this morning to help a four-legged hiker who had gotten lost on the hiking trail down from Barr Camp. After being carried for many miles by our team, the hiker was finally reunited with his family.

Pikes Peak is a popular destination for hikers and climbers looking to challenge themselves. The mountain has 19 miles of terrain leading to its summit, making it a great choice for those looking for an adventure. With stunning views of the city of Colorado Springs and the surrounding area, Pikes Peak is a must-visit for anyone in the area.

In their post, rescuers said that Roland’s owner had been carrying him for many miles and was happy to get some help returning to their car.

A comment on the Facebook post, which appears to be from a family member of the dog’s owner, thanked the rescuers and said, “I’m sure Roland enjoyed the attention.”
