Collegian, 21, Is Rescued Off Mountain After Getting High On Mushrooms, Stripping Off Her Clothes
The Smoking Gun ^ | 5-20-2013 | TSG

Posted on 05/22/2013 9:41:56 AM PDT by servo1969

Meet Taylor Powers.

The college student, 21, had to be rescued yesterday afternoon off a Colorado mountain after she ingested mushrooms, stripped off her clothes, and scuffled with two classmates with whom she had been hiking.

After receiving a 911 call that a female hiker was “high on mushrooms and in distress,” Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputies and other assorted rescue personnel (35 in total) responded to Chautauqua Park.

Powers, seen above, was located by a park ranger who discovered that the University of Colorado undergrad had “removed all of her clothing and was being restrained” by two male companions. Rescuers had to handcuff the unruly Powers, who struggled as she was placed in a rescue basket.

Cited for unlawful consumption of a controlled substance, Powers was transported to a Boulder hospital, where she was treated and released last night. “Further charges are pending against others involved,” deputies reported.

Powers, a communications major, has not commented on her weekend adventure on her Facebook page (which includes hiking and skiing photos).

"Powers, a communications major"

Well of course she is. I'd have been surprised if she wasn't, quite frankly.

Having known a few, and dated one, I was thinking exactly the same thing while reading the article.

How many of them were necessary and how many just wanted to see a 21 year old girl running around high and naked?

note to hiker’guys - you want to go hiking with cute girls that, when they take mushrooms, remove their clothing and get HORNY, not combative.

i assume the above pic was before the mushrooms.

Only 35 showed up for a naked, college girl.

I am surprised that number was not higher.

Doesn't she realize that works exactly the opposite of the way the wearer intends? The nice guys won't talk to her and the ring doesn't even slow the jerks down. :)

She and her parents should pay every nickel of her rescue. Next time the call for assistance for a Boulder dope head comes in, they should hang up.

Yeah. Reminds me of the line in Casino Royale where Bond says to Vespa, “You’re not my type.” “Smart?”, she says. “No. Single.”

In the real world, some guys “prefer” married women that are looking for a “thrill”.

BTW, the woman I mentioned was telling me this because she was coming on to me.

I’m thinking he’s not here because they don’t have wi-fi on his plane.

Works the same for guys as well. I never was come onto so much, as when I first got married and wore the ring (of course I had to turn them all down).

Young, naked, female, groovin', and apparently "in distress". "Here to help, ma'am!"

Just asked my daughter, who’s an EMT. “So you’re on the 911 response, and you arrive on the scene to see a naked, unruly Miss Powers, fighting and refusing aid. What would you do?”

She told me: “Taze her and drag her butt into the helo.”

35 personnel responded immediately to the top of a mountain.

Lesson learned? If you have an emergency and need help, make sure you use the words “naked coed” with 911.
