(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Two 19-year-old hikers are safe today after being rescued from a U.S. Forest Service cabin near the border of Wyoming.

The men, who had no food or jackets, spent Friday night in the cabin after becoming stranded on a hike when a storm dropped two feet of snow in the mountains.

Jason Lyman and Jordan Holmberg were rescued last night by Forest Service rangers, a Summit County search and rescue team and a medical helicopter.

They had driven to the Uinta mountains on Friday from Lonetree, Wyoming.

One of the men had a cell phone and alerted authorities. Authorities say neither suffered injuries, but both men were cold, tired and hungry.
