When Alejandra Wilson woke up and saw snow on her tent near Mount Adams, she knew she wasn’t hiking out anytime soon.

So the Portland woman who had been hiking the Pacific Crest Trail hunkered down and began rationing food, water and fuel. She put a hot water bottle in her sleeping bag at night, but it was still so cold out she sat up shivering.

Meanwhile, searchers and a helicopter were looking for her. She saw the chopper one day but couldn’t get its attention.

She tells The Oregonian she thought she might not make it.

But on Saturday, she woke to find that the snow hard enough so she could walk out.

She’s now home, where her father says he’s proud of her for making sound decisions.
