More on deaths in the national parks

Two to three people die in Zion National Park each year (http://www.examiner.com/outdoor-recreation-in-salt-lake-city/zion-national-park-sees-three-deaths-two-days) - sometimes from falls, sometimes from floods.

In 2003 the US Park Rangers of the Fraternal Order of Police announced its list of most dangerous national parks, monuments, recreation areas, etc. (dangerous to whom?  rangers or the public?). The most dangerous (Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument (AZ), Amistad National Recreation Area (TX), Big Bend National Park (TX), and Coronado National Monument (AZ)) are so identified because of human menaces (drug smugglers and drunk boaters and drivers).  http://www.travelkb.com/Uwe/Forum.aspx/rv/3756/Most-Dangerous-National-Parks-2003
