PORTLAND, OR – They are conditions that would seem impossible to surmount. Mary Owen was lost on Mount Hood for six nights. The Oregon woman was by herself, with very little food, in freezing weather. She should be dead, but you might say she was living on faith.

“I just woke up with really a lot of peace and the sense of thousands and thousands of people praying for me. That was really really powerful. So Friday I was just like this is the day they’re going to find me and I was super optimistic,” she says.

Owen was hiking alone when she hit whiteout conditions that made her fall 40 feet over a rocky terrain.

She survived on melted snow, chia, ramen and Nutri-Grain bars. Owen now admits hiking alone was a mistake.
