ESTES PARK, CO - Judy Curtis was hiking with friends near Estes Park
on Saturday when she felt a large boulder give way under her feet.
In what she described as a terrifying jumble of rocks and motion, she found herself pinned under the 4,000-pound rock.
One thing went badly wrong that day, but so many things went right that Curtis, 47, of Arvada
received only relatively minor injuries.

Judy Curtis doesn't think she's lucky, but she knows she's blessed.
The 47-year-old Arvada mother of four daughters easily could have been killed, maimed or much more seriously injured Saturday when a five-foot-diameter, one-ton boulder rolled onto her legs, pinning her for more than three hours.
Instead, Curtis found herself Sunday in St. Anthony Central Hospital
with a dislocated left hip, a large patch of skin scraped off her thigh and a deep cut on one calf.
