Planning a Trip to the Grand Canyon: Everything You Need to Know

Visual Description:  Too close for comfort.


Clue/Question:  When the kids got too close to the rim of the Grand Canyon, their parents were – – –

The Grand Canyon Skywalk The #Grand #Canyon #Skywalk is a ...

Answer:  SCARED $H!TL3$$  Well, maybe just – – – ON EDGE

(My wife can’t look at some of the hiking photos that my daughter takes!  And, my daughter is almost 29!  With little kids it’s simply a matter of curiosity.  The big ones do it mostly for shock value.  I don’t trust my balance anymore.  For me to get to the rim, I’d have to crawl on my belly, like at a boot camp obstacle course.

No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  No head scratchers for me today.  Today’s answer letter layout was a concise six letter jumble.  It did the trick though.

The Grand Canyon is a very popular Jumble theme.  Jeff does a fine job of drawing it for the cartoons.  Do they let you walk right up to the rim like that, or is this just artistic license?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    it’s funny, I used to blame it on age. But while until around my 40s (aging myself again) I was dreaming about jumping from a plane (and it almost happened), today I wouldn’t’ be caught dead hanging on a parachute. I gathered it’s mostly me. Fun to watch other people doing it, though.

    miffed at why/how the parents let the kids get
    that close in the first place??! {It’s just a puzzle,

    Unc asks: “Do they let you walk right up to the rim like that, or is this just artistic license?”

    Yes, they let you walk right up to the edge of the canyon. Pedestrian guardrails are installed along the rim in many of the more tourist-populated areas of the Grand Canyon where there’s a steep drop-off. But that’s a relatively small portion of the rim, because the canyon is huge..

    There are many places visitors can reach on the rim that have a dropoff with no guardrail. Even guardrails are not guaranteed protection for the kind of stupidity seen in the photo, because as signs along the rim clearly illustrate, the rim crumbles down into the canyon. That’s how the canyon was formed and still is being formed!

    People will hand their cellphones or cameras to their friends, go up to the rim edge, and jump up and down laughing and pointing at signs nearby if any which tell them not to do that. People have died jumping or even just standing on the rim edge when it’s given way there. A clear example of Darwinian thinning the herd before it reproduces. Of course most stupid people doing this survive anyway, but it’s *really* dumb. It’s like playing with the bison or bears at Yellowstone.

    Oh and in some places the guardrail is placed several feet away from the rim, but people have died after climbing over the rail to get to the rim and then falling in. You can’t fix stupid, but there’s some small chance nature will prevent it from reproducing.

    LOL and sad, at the same time, David. Thanks for reading what I wrote. I’ll have to ask questions more often! LOL! — YUR
