I sure hate to hear when this happens, but unfortunately bad choices often times have fatal endings. Do not go under the road at Haystack, it is not safe and I don't want to read about you having a nice adventure only to hear you didn't make it home.

Deb and my thoughts and prayers go out to this family..

These accidents are very sad and our prayers are with his family.

It is hard to imagine that rather innocent looking activity such as exploring around a creek could result in such tragic consequences but we see it time and again in the Park.

Wow, that's horrible. I was riding the west side shuttle that same day in the early afternoon. The driver warned everyone about climbing to close a Haystack Falls because of the accident from last year. This accident my have happened minutes after we passed. I feel so sorry for his parents.
