Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 125 (Danger Sign Ignored)

A warning sign many ignoreX

A sign placed near the entrance to the trail leading to Bridalveil Fall

This is something I just don’t understand. This warning sign is very clear and announces DANGER. I don’t know how legible it is on your computer monitor or device, but the little red and yellow sign in the upper-left says:

2015 life altering injuries to visitors scrambling between boulders below waterfalls:

  • 1 spinal fracture – paraplegic
  • 1 cervical fracture – quadraplegic
  • 1 skull fracture – traumatic brain injury
  • 1 shoulder dislocation
  • Multiple leg and arm fractures

PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL

Below this sign, there are replicas of x-rays that show some of the broken bones and injuries.

With all this, AND with rather large yellow danger signs attached to some of the boulders, people were still scrambling on the rocks and taking risks just like those in the picture.

It is hard for me to understand this behavior. I enjoy a thrill as much as anyone else, but when clear warning is given in a national park or other hiking area, attention must be paid! Another thing or two to keep in mind…Where is the nearest hospital and how would I get there?

Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 25 (Warning Signs)

Warning: Stay on the Trail

Don’t forget that National Parks are not zoos or arboretums and can be dangerous.

Every national park has warning signs to denote that although there are trails which are maintained and some amenities may be available, these areas are wild. They have animals, large rocks, crevices, etc. It is up to each individual to keep alert. The best advice I can give is “Don’t take chances.” If something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it! This photo was taken near the beginning of the Four Mile Trail from Glacier Point.

NOTE – The sign indicates that there had been only four rescues up to this time in the year, but bear in mind that the picture was taken at the very beginning of their “busy season.”
