troll. Why not just leave a positive comment about how gravity does not apply in Estes and there is no reason to note an obvious trend, which is that this place is not safe for man nor beast alike. I'm sure you would have been at Auschwitz pointing out that all the burned bodies were great for fertilizer.

A great many people love visiting Rocky Mountain National Park and some of those people for some unknown reason; enjoy climbing up and around on the rocks and every once in a while they fall and they die.
Many of the deaths are gruesome and that means a closed coffin when they arrive home for their funeral. Now I think that if you defy the laws of gravity, then you will pay the penalty but what concerns me is the fact that other people, specifically, Park Rangers and other personnel must take risks to retrieve those who have had a close personal contact with Mother Nature. I realize those rescue folks do that for a living, but dying isn't much of a living should it come to that.
Perhaps the National Park Service and ROMO in particular should ban some areas of the Park from climbing and or hiking - I heard a Park Superintendent once say that "we're not here to provide entertainment".
Think about it ok?

It's the people's Park! Yes, there are elites who think that the public should not be allowed on some of their own lands - usually it's the wilderness nazis of the Park Service or some special interest groups out of Boulder. Not gonna happen. That fat superintendent isn't "providing" anything - those climbers are creating their own entertainment.......
