[QUOTE=Oakman;867071]Looks like it will be a long season for the park rangers at Yellowstone NP. 10 days ago there was a bear incident in the park and thankfully there were no injuries. This past Friday a young girl was gored by a Bison and fortunately she will recover. Yesterday a man was VERY lucky he didnít fall to his death at the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. He fell 25 feet but was able to stop his fall just before he would have gone off a cliff. IMO, the greater Yellowstone area is the most beautiful and interesting place in the lower 48 states but you have to understand the dangers when you visit. Photos are courtesy of the NP.
The black "X" marks the spot where the man stopped his fall.
We love to visit the National Parks in our area and are often amazed at what people will do just out of sheer ignorance of their surroundings. My favorite Ranger response to a guest's concerns about the dangers of hiking the Angel's Landing trail in Zion: "Well, this ain't Disneyland ma'm"
