The photo you clicked on is the incredibly beautiful waterfall at Washington's Palouse Falls State Park. Unfortunately it's also where a man fell to his death when he tried to take a pic with his girlfriend :(
We've seen a LOT of stories over the last few years of people putting their lives on the line or even losing their lives over taking a "selfie." So I wanted to take a moment to share this story with you and remind you to BE CAREFUL when taking pics in potentially dangerous situations!!! This story is a PERFECT example:
According to his girlfriend, the unnamed man hit a rock as he fell 198-feet. At that point, officials presumed the man had died.
Apparently park officials put up temporary fencing to prevent hikers from attempting potentially dangerous trails the falls back in 2015. Last year, however, the fence was removed and replaced with signs warning visitors to avoid unmarked trails.
