Sample text

A moment later another of the women who had been standing in midriver tried to shoot a photo. Her hat fell off. The current instantly propelled it downstream. Little Christine scrambled across the flow to retrieve the dropped hat. Instantly, the river gripped her and carried her toward the waterfall. Within seconds, Yolanda, Christine’s mother, began stumbling down the river to chase down Christine. She too lost her footing and was swept helplessly toward the brink. As witnesses behind the guardrail and others safely dotting the shoreline watched in horror, the Merced swept the lost hat over Vernal Fall.

Mendonca pulled his truck off on a shoul­ der. Here the two decided to scramble off-trail, ultimately dropping down into the gorge above The Cascades. Once the two teenagers had worked their way down the steep slopes of Cascade Creek they felt almost magnetically pulled to clamber downstream farther to the brink of the next precipice in hopes of peering directly down the 500-foot-high series of waterfalls they knew existed there. Inconveniently, Mother Nature had configured Cascade Creek so that a per­ son could not simply walk up to the level edge of the next fall and be able to stare straight down and watch the creek dissociate into thin air in a series of waterfalls more than twice as high as Niagara.

An important point here is the solo aspect of Hansch’s demise and the mys­ terious disappearance of people hiking, trekking, or climbing alone. Almost one in five of all such plunges off waterfalls were men who were by themselves at the time. On May 27, 1978, 23-year-old Dennison Taylor from San Carlos, California had been camping in the Valley with five friends. Alone, Taylor wandered about a mile and a half upstream of the footbridge east of Mirror Lake. He never returned. His body was found the next day, submerged in the second pool below Hidden Falls in Tenaya Creek.
