Whoah! Someone died on 7 Falls? I was there just this year!
Yes, someone sure did.
Near the top as I recall, climbed over the handrail to take a picture of her girlfriends that were with her. Her back was to the river, she took one more step backwards on the wet, slippery rocks, slipped, and fell a long ways.
Really sad, just a young, innocent girl who made a foolish error in judgment.
Did you drive Gold Camp Road? Very pretty. That’s where the ice flow incident took place.
There has been at least one in Garden of Gods too.
Or the guy who decided to go off-road up near Cripple Creek. An open vertical mineshaft took him and his truck down 5 or 600 feet. It took a long time to find him, as ‘the earth simply swallowed him up’.
Some things are usually left out of the brochures.
