Oregon man, 2 dogs saved after being stranded 4 days in high desert
A 72-year-old man and his two dogs were rescued from the Oregon high desert last week after four days of stranding, Oregon State Police said. (CNN) - A 72-year-old man and his two dogs took the road less traveled by to explore the isolated Oregon high desert. Mountain biker Tomas Quinones discovered a man, severely dehydrated and nearly unconscious, on a July 18 ride through the canyon. "I realized those were shoes, not hooves, and it was a person," Tomas Quinones told the Oregonian. Randolph took off on foot the next morning, hiking more than 14 miles in the dry heat toward the nearest road, police said.
