The Rocky Mountains are known for their dramatic climate changes. Well that became a problem for Ryan and his father when they were out hiking one day. Ryan became separated from his father just as the temperature was starting to drop. His father called for a search and rescue team but they had to call the search off for the night. Snow was falling and hypothermia was setting in when Ryan noticed two elk. He tried scaring them away, but it became apparent that they just wanted to help. They lied down beside him to block the cold and provide just enough warmth to save his life. What a miracle.
