You cannot account for stupid, but the Park Service tries. Safety - Yellowstone National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

Day 2 in Yellowstone we saw a bunch of cars parked on the side of the road and stopped. Went down to a river where we saw this giant grizzly sleeping off eating half a deer. A ranger yelled at us saying that bear can run 35 miles an hour. I looked at the group of people and said to the wife, "don't worry honey, we can run faster than half these people".

First lesson about dealing with bears: Food runs. You run, you must be food.

Saw this guy in Alaska, he thought he could intimidate a 12 passenger van, he was right.

You'll love it! If you get a chance, do the Beartooth Highway, out the northeast exit from Yellowstone to Red Lodge MT.

[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"
