Three fatal accidents in GNP-please be careful!

Another body was found in GNP yesterday-that of a 24 tear old man from Kalispell. That makes three for the season so far. All preventable. I'm sure none of these men entered the park thinking they might die. how tragic. Please please be careful in all your outdoor adventures!

I spoke to soon. After reading the NPS post again, they are not sure how the young man died.

There were two rangers waiting for investigation crew at 6:00 am yesterday morning when I was headed to Logan Pass and about 30 between the Loop and the Heli 'pad' near Logan Creek when I hiked to the Loop at 4 pm. This incident is still under investigation but care needs to be taken, as GNP4me correctly points out, when hiking, biking et al in GNP.
