I was visiting my sister and brother-in-law in Durango when, on Dec. 8, my sister and I were walking three dogs on county roads 202 and 203. As we approached the place where 201 and 203 meet, I became very dizzy and fainted. I believe it was because of the sun, dehydration and the elevation. Neither my sister nor I had our cellphones and did not know what to do.
A very nice lady with two young boys stopped to help us. She offered me water, her jacket as a headrest and some fruit. She wet her boys T-shirt and put it on my forehead. She stayed with me while my sister took the three dogs home and drove back to take me home.
Unfortunately, we did not get her name or address. Her boy told me her first name was Sequoia. I am so thankful for her help. I hope she reads this.
