This week, we revisited the search for Ksenia Quiros
, who went missing in the Stratton Open Space
in April, in our cover story "As I Lay Dying."
Here's a visual showing the point where her pickup truck was found at the La Veta Way trailhead on April 15, on the right side of the map, and where a couple of hikers discovered her frozen body four days later. The distance is about one mile but the hike covers about three miles, according to those familiar with Stratton Open Space on the city's southwest side.
The map was produced by the El Paso County Assessor's Office
Here's another perspective of the area from Mark Lewis, who was following the story as it unfolded.
The distance, as measured on Google earth is 1.94 miles, and it's very steep towards the end.
