Really missed being out yesterday. Rest is important, though. I hope all of you are having a good spring!

POWELL COUNTY, Ky. —

Three hikers were rescued Tuesday night after getting lost in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge.

Authorities said a mother and two teens got turned around while hiking at the gorge, a popular canyon system located near Lexington.

Search crews said the trio was attempting to hike to Gray’s Arch, but somehow got turned around.

"We went the wrong direction and we didn't find out until we found a really steep hill," Jeremy Moore, one of the three hikers, told our partners at WLEX-TV. "It just kept going up and we knew it wasn't anywhere near."

The lost hikers called for help. Rescue crews at first tried to guide them out over the phone, WLEX reports.

The phone calls were unsuccessful, so two search crews were sent down two different trail systems. Authorities said the hikers were found safe, and guided back to familiar territory under the moonlight.
