Beware of head clearance! Thank you to my friends for still capturing the moment for me....

Hi Troy! We miss you over here!

Enjoy your surroundings, it's not always about you.

By “edge” remember that can be a 2” drop on sidewalk. My falls are always over a crack or small step 😒 while I am admiring the view.

Watch the animals from a safe distance!

The middle of the road is NOT a good place for a selfie. Gosh, I wish that one weren't necessary.

I enjoy reading the latest Darwin Awards.

Hi Ranger Jane!

Stay at least 10 yards from a drop and have a friend watch to warn if you back up. Better yet is have a friend take the photo

No selfies. Bring a real camera so you don’t have your back to the danger. Take no more than 5 seconds for one photo. No retakes! Make sure you are calm before you start taking photos. Those places aren’t where it’s appropriate to be rambunctious.

Be respectful of other visitors who would like a picture without you in it!

STAY BEHIND ANY BARRIERS YOU SEE. You can also use that selfie stick to extend outward instead of putting yourself at risk. Is that photo REALLY worth your life?

Take the picture, don’t be the picture!

Please don't pet the bison!
