▶️ Trail Angels: Local teens’ uncommon wilderness skills save injured Portland man


It was a backpacking trip teenage siblings Shiloh and Marah Binder and their good friend Caden Bolic had been looking forward to for months.

But 150 miles into the trip their plans took a dramatic turn.

Now the three local teenagers are being called heroes after helping save the life of a man severely injured and stranded in the Mount Jefferson wilderness.

Central Oregon Daily’s Eric Lindstrom has more.
