How is this not (yet?) a TruTV show or something I’d find on Discovery+? Two lists detail America’s deadliest national parks.
Plus, the TSA is training flight crews on how to protect themselves from unruly passengers.
Those are some of the day’s travel-related headlines I thought you, too, may find interesting.
America’s Deadliest — National Parks?
National parks are known for many things. Their beauty. Their unique features. Regularly discounted or free admission.
But they’re also dangerous, apparently.
There are dueling lists as to which US national parks are the deadliest. (Falls, drownings, and other accidents are all taken into account.)
USA Today published this photo essay illustrating the 20 most lethal national parks.
North Cascades National Park has the dubious honor of scoring number one, with 625.35 deaths per 10 million visits. Denali National Park & Preserve and Upper Delaware Scenic & Recreational River round out that list’s top three.
Outforia disagrees. They say the Grand Canyon is widowmaker number one, followed by Yosemite and Great Smoky Mountains.
Let’s hope that Jasmine Wilson — who plans to visit every national park — safely completes her journey!
How many of the deadly bunch have you visited?
