      Woman found in Colorado ravine has ties to Upper Michigan

      There's an Upper Peninsula connection to the woman who survived for at least five days, trapped in a wrecked car in a Colorado ravine, without food and water.

      Kristin Hopkins is in critical condition as of Wednesday.

      Her parents are Glen and Connie Morgan, who both grew up in Marquette.

      They were graduates of Bishop Baraga High School in the mid 1960's. Connie's maiden name was Engman.

      The parents are thankful Kristin is alive to celebrate her 44th birthday on Wednesday, but she faces a long recovery.

      Doctors amputated both feet of the single mother of four. Kristin's car went off the road and was discovered Sunday by a husband and wife driving on the highway.

      They stopped after noticing some glare and notified authorities, never expecting the car's passenger to still be alive.
