Lost Hiker Tells of Scary, Chilly Night Alone in Angeles National Forest

"There’s a lot of lessons to be learned here," Leum said. "He went out alone. He didn’t tell anybody where he was going. He didn’t have the 10 essentials. He had a guide book with him, but without knowing where you are a guide book’s not gonna be any help. And he went into an area he hadn’t hiked before."
