Earlier this month, Joe Seeds was rescued by a Blackhawk helicopter and a Mountain Rescue Aspen (MRA) team. He had lost his way on Capitol Peak. Seeds was back in the valley yesterday to pick up his pack and campsite from Capitol Lake and stopped by the studio to talk with reporter Elizabeth Stewart-Severy.
MRA is working to increase education about how to travel safely in the backcountry. The organization is planning a community forum next month.
