A naked hiker believed to be high on psilocybin mushrooms was apprehended by rangers Sunday near Boulder, Colo.
Her hiking partners had called police to report bizarre behavior by Taylor Powers, 21, a student at the University of Colorado, according to the Boulder County Sheriff's Office. Responding to a trail near the Third Flatiron, rescuers found that Powers had removed all of her clothing and was being restrained by her roommates.
Rangers handcuffed her and transported her to nearby shelter. She was then taken to Boulder Community Hospital, where she was treated and released.
Powers was ticketed with unlawful consumption of a controlled substance. Officials indicated there could be additional charges filed against others involved in the incident.
In November 2011, a half-naked climber believed to be high on mushrooms was rescued from First Flatiron. A civilian rescuer might have been bitten during that incident, Boulder emergency officials said.
