Overdue Ultra Trail Runner

On Sunday, July 24, 2016, a Mission was called out for an overdue Ultra Runner who had failed to return to the Santa Fe Ski Basin parking area the previous afternoon. His planned 30 mile run was from the ski basin to Wilderness Gate up Raven’s Ridge to Deception Lake to Penitent to Puerto Nambe to Windy Saddle to Santa Fe Baldy and back to Lake Katherine to Lake Johnson then back to Windy Saddle and back to the parking area. At Puerto Nambe he missed a turn and after realizing the error after passing Spirit Lake, elected to camp for the night He was well equipped to do so. He started back at 5:30am the next morning and was met by a search team at approximately 8:ooam who returned with him back to Incident Base.
