Mom, boy get lost in nature -- literally
I admit it. At first, I scoffed at the news of a mom and son getting lost while bike riding in a park in Eagan.
I can understand getting temporarily turned around in a park. But needing a rescue from police and state troopers?
The woman and her son went biking at Lebanon Hills Regional Park at about 6:30 p.m. At about 9 p.m., unable to find their way out, they called for help.
Here's where my initial 'Oh come on' reaction kicks in. A mom can't just lead her son out of a park? Even when they can cover a lot of ground on bikes?
But then there was this detail from WCCO: One of the first responding officers got lost, too. And then it turns out police had to track down the woman and her son using her cell phone. A park ranger found the woman and her son at about midnight. They were fine.
"We've had lost people before in Lebanon Hills. It's quite an extensive trail and when it gets dark in there, it's really hard to find your way around," said Eagan Police Sgt. Linda Mhyre.
So maybe knowing your way around this park is a challenge after all. At 2,000 acres, this is a big park. It's also dotted with lakes and ponds that make for trails with a lot of twists and turns.
Next time you head to Lebanon Hills in Eagan, you may want to pack a handy map.
That is quite the extensive trail, particularly if you are not used to moving through singletrack, etc. Yes, we all think that Minnesotans are born with some sort of pre-programmed understanding of nature ... but it is not easy. Glad that they are ok.
these people must have been completely map illiterate, because lebanon hills is one of the most well marked parks/mountain biking areas i've ever been to. The trails are obvious and easy to follow. All it would have taken is some light from her cell phone to read the map! Maybe before you go out biking you should have some idea how to read a map, lady.
