KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — A Southern Oregon woman spent the night bundled with her infant son in a hollowed-out tree after wandering away from camp.

Now, she says she's training to become one of the search-and-rescue volunteers who spent a September night searching for her.

The Herald and News in Klamath Falls reports (http://bit.ly/H7oaTX ) Billie-Jean Biria got turned around en route to retrieving her son's red beanie, which fell from his head on Sept. 17.

With her son and two dogs in tow, Biria found the beanie but lost her way, and had to take shelter.

On Sept. 18, she heard her husband's truck and ran to a nearby road, where she found dozens of search and rescue volunteers.

It wasn't an unqualified success: Her son's beanie fell off his head again on their way back to camp, and remains lost.
