(HAGERSTOWN, Md.) – Two east-coast hikers put their survival skills to the test after being stranded in Glacier National Park over the weekend. Rangers say the hikers, both of whom are Virginia residents, were well prepared for nearly four days of inhospitable, wintry weather. The men reportedly rationed their food, lit a smoky fire and made an SOS message out of logs. The hikers were rescued on Monday afternoon when a park employee noticed flagging which led him to their location.
