Boulders exceeding 100 tons crashed into a viewing area a half-mile up a popular day-hike area, Chaffee County Undersheriff John Spezze said.
The slide left a football-field-sized gash below Mount Princeton, a 14,197-foot peak. A female hiker who heard the slide ran down the trail and called for help, Spezze said.
Rescuers found five dead bodies and a 13-year-old girl with a broken leg and other injuries. The girl was flown to a Denver hospital. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
