Well at least she died doing what she loved.

She may have asked Jesus to protect her from Covid-19 using language that allowed for multiple interpretations.

// He's a scamp, that Jesus.

Screaming in terror and flailing her limbs?

Bouncing off rocks at terminal velocity is a strange hobby.

After 100 feet, she was only doing about 80/feet/sec.

You don't hit terminal velocity until about 1500 feet of freefall.

Either way, don't climb over fences to get a nice shot of the edge ya twits.

Did she get the selfie?

No and the damn cable is still on the fritz.

FTFA: "An investigation into the incident is being conducted by the National Park Service and the Coconino County Medical Examiner's Office,"

They should bring in a physicist.

Came for the last selfie, leaving disappointed.

Something something Scottsdale something because of course.

Sigh. Arizonans have no business trying to navigate canyons by themselves. They should be assigned guides until they become accustomed to the terrain and can spot potential dangers.
 
2020-07-04 11:59:20 PM  
It's not the fall that kills you, it's the sudden stop at the bottom.

As we say in Arizona, "Know why you never hear about squirrels falling into the Grand Canyon? Because squirrels don't have cameras."

Nowadays, there's a chance that she live-streamed until she not-quite-live-streamed her journey.

Uh.

People from the land of canyons shouldn't be allowed near canyons?
