College students rescued in Owl Creek Mountains

RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — Fremont County officials rescued four Northwest College students who became stranded in the Owl Creek Mountains.

Officials say the male students were returning to school in Powell from a trip in the Jackson and Dubois area on Sunday. They reportedly were relying on a highway navigation device that told them to cross the Owl Creek Mountains via Blondie Pass.

They drove about 30 miles before becoming stuck in a large snow drift on top of the pass.

The Associated Press reports that even in good conditions, the route is arduous and little-used.

One of the students used a cellphone to call law enforcement, and a deputy with two search and rescue volunteers reached the group a little over two hours later. No injuries were reported.
