I don't know how to comment

I don't know how to comment on this story. I mean yes I feel bad that three people died plunging over Vernal Falls. But if where gonna point fingers, it might as well be pointed to those three people. Yosemite clearly states when river waters or falls are to high for people to get up and close. And for crying out loud, they block them out to the public for a reason. It don't take a rocket scientist to figure it out that they blocked it out due to high cold water moving fast. I mean come on people, these people were younger then me and the twenty seven was older then me. I'm twenty three. I been going to Yosemite since I was a baby. And even to this day, when I see parts of Yosemite rope off, I am not a tourist and tresspass it and see up close. If your a tourist, learn to respect Yosemite and the park itself. When you see something crossed off, It is their for a reason. Not your part of crossing it. Learn to see with your eyes. Cause God forbid, this will happen to another person, get swept away!! God be with the family during this time.
