An experienced outdoorswoman hiking on Chimney Rock near Priest Lake was hit by a boulder and trapped, forced to lay face down for nearly nine hours.
It's the beauty that draws many to the outdoors in North Idaho; the hiking, biking, climbing possibilities are endless, but it comes with certain risks.
"We hiked up crossed the talus field had a lengthy discussion about how dangerous talus is he kept referring to it as like lightning you just never know when it's going to strike and it does," Ammi Midstokke said.
On Friday Midstokke was climbing Chimney Rock when, during her descent, a two-ton boulder shifted, hitting her in the head and as she tried to move out of its path her foot became trapped.
"There was a brief moment from the initial strike, the initial impact and the second roll and I tried to scramble out of the way but I was a little delirious from the first impact," she said.
Luckily her climbing partner was an EMT and a member of search and rescue and, after about 20 minutes of trying to move the boulder themselves, they called for help.
