Three high visitation parks,Lake Mead,Ysemite, and Grand Canyon, account for the greatest number of visitor deaths. Watch your step!

I read this recently:

How 1,600 People Went Missing from Our Public Lands Without a Trace
By: Jon Billman
Mar 13, 2017


That's a whole lot of people missing. I am curious about the conspiracy theories Paulides.

“I don’t put any theories in the books—I just connect facts,” he told me. Under “unique factors of disappearances,” he lists such ­recurring characteristics as dogs unable to track scents, the time (late afternoon is a popular window to vanish), and that many victims are found with clothing and footwear removed. Bodies are also discovered in previously searched areas with odd fre­quency, ­sometimes right along the trail. Children—and remains—are occasionally found improbable ­distances from the point last seen, in improbable ­terrain.

I listened to an interview wit him on Youtube, and was a bit disappointed he didn't venture to offer a paranormal explanation. What a killjoy!
