     In June of 2012, Taylor climbed the Salkantay Pass in the Peruvian Andes. She used Ski Patrolling first responder techniques as well as her Spanish language skills to lead the rescue of a Denver attorney who fell 30 feet down a ravine into the Salkantay River, fracturing both wrists and sustaining a head laceration.
