    It’s possible they were republicans. Taft point can be reached without any hiking.

        Did you hear Gavin Newsome is going to close the park down so that it will be preserved for the future to look at from photos and satellite views only. Humans are ruining it.

        They pretty much have that arrangement in China, N. Korea and Russia. You'd probably be comfortable in one of those countries. I suggest you emigrate at earliest opportunity. You don't fit in here at all.

      A Five Decade Registered Democrat here and I'm voting for all Republicans.
      President Trump has shown what a President can accomplish when he's for his country before
      his and his friends pocket book. Protecting America and her people was his first promise and he's doing it
      even though every...single...democrat in congress is fighting everything he's trying to do.
      So why would I ever vote democrat again, all they do is try to bring our President and OUR country to it's knees?

      Keep America going STRONG, VOTE REPUBLICAN.

        The richest Americans added 20% to their wealth last year. He is absolutely helping his own, his family, and his friend's pocket book.
        But sure, blame the poor people. Did you know that to "pull one's self up by their bootstraps" is intended to mean to do the impossible?

      The same could be said for Trump. Why indeed? Because he promised you a tax cut and making the Chinese pay? It's you that will be paying more at the store and the GOP has effectively mortgaged our grandchildren with a huge federal deficit. And yet "they" label Democrats as the spend folks.

    In the picture, snapped in the darkness of a Wilton vineyard, Jack Kautz crouches behind a dead buck, smiling as he holds up the animal's head by its freakishly large set of antlers.

    It was a buck for the record books with sprawling antlers about an arm's width apart. If Katuz 52, had been had been able to claim it is a official trophy, he could have added it to his long list of accomplishments detailed on the website of his family's Lodi grape growing business, Ironstone Vineyards.

So one might of started to fall and the other may of tried to stop the fall? I wonder if they were wearing a good hiking shoe or something not suited for the hike. I've heard from rangers that some of these visitors try hiking in their flip flops. Being city slickers they have no idea of the terrain.
It's getting pretty rare for these deaths and injuries to be published, it seems they don't like the news coming out when it might scare a tourist away.

Condolences to the family and friends.
