U.S. Tourism Update

A follow-up to a previous post.

On April 23 another Grand Canyon visitor, this time an elderly woman, hurtled to her death about 200 feet below the rim.  This is the fifth Grand Canyon death so far this year.  Not all have happened in the official national park.

How long until someone wants to ruin the view by putting elaborate, high fencing all along the rim in an attempt to prevent stupid people from being stupid?

 

New U.S. tourism trend

The latest hot trend in U.S. tourism is falling over the edge of the Grand Canyon and plummeting to your death.  Recently, there have been three such airborne deaths at the canyon in the span of just over a week.

The “things happen in threes” rule suggest that the trend may be over, but we are dealing with humans in the age of smart phones, so this could go on for a while.
