Rumors Spread About A Hound In The Mountains, So This Woman Hiked Up And Made A Startling Discovery

As rumors spread about a hound howling high up in the Colorado mountains, Sean Nichols and Trinity Smith pulled on their hiking boots and went investigating. For hours they saw nothing, and then they heard a harrowing cry.

Larry Osborne and Anouk Patel live in Alma, Colorado. There, they run the South Park Saloon – the highest saloon in North America. As such, they are at the heart of their community and well known in the area.

Given that their home and business is nestled in the Rocky Mountains, the couple relish any opportunity to get out in the open. Some of their favorite pastimes are hiking, skiing, fishing and camping, which they enjoy with their son Shail and dog Chloe.

In 2017 Osborne and Patel were enjoying a late summer hike with their Labrador-pit bull mix. As they made their way into the mountains, however, the beloved 14-year-old Chloe ran away.

Distraught owners Osborne and Patel looked everywhere for their precious pet, but she was nowhere to be seen. The couple refused to give up, however. So, they put the word out among Alma’s 300 residents that Chloe was missing.
