  •  And Dangerous Spots At The Bottom (3+ / 0-)

    A crumbling 600' cliff had a narrow gully going up 300' and a small pile of gravel at the bottom, which my kid wandered over to check out.  I immediately yelled at them to get away.  When they asked why I said "Because those rocks come down that gully like bullets, and that's where they land."

    Last time we we were there, the spot we camped had been buried by a field of gravel 2' deep that had washed off that cliff in flash flood.

      you've been there and done (experienced) that. People need to keep in mind erosion is always at work in all ways in all places. Ergo, let's not help the process along, shall we? Especially where others may get injured or killed. One foreign rock thrower on the rim, who was apprehended by the parkys, said he was only trying to see how far the dang rock would go BEFORE starting the Newtonian descent. He got off easy: 350 bucks (he happened to be tossing the rock above the So. Kaibab trail. Geesh. When the Creator handed out brains, this guy must have thought 'trains' and asked for two sets.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
