Members of the Cedaredge Senior Hikers group on a river float outing last week ended up playing the role of heroes by rescuing a pair of tourists who had become stranded during their own Gunnison River outing.
Jude Kieca, a member of the Hikers' group, reported to the DCI that, "It turned out to be a exciting day as we rescued two doctors, one from New York and the other from New Mexico, who had wrapped their canoe around a rock.
Mel Edmunds would have totally enjoyed the 15-year reunion of the Cedaredge Hikers at Town Park last week.

Decker lead the group to a sharpening site where prehistoric people sharpened their stone tools.
