  1. A very common occurrence at the park… My husband and I were there visiting when we saw several idiots sitting on the edge, taking selfies, going beyond the safety markers! One man had his wife and infant sit on the edge to get a photo but was caught by a park ranger, thank God! We visitors hollered at him but all we got was a go-to-hell look, but yes, we tried.
    If the signs say Don’t Do It….Don’t freaking Do It!
    My husband and I lived to enjoy the beauty of the park simply because we OBEYED the rules…
    If you don’t know how to follow rules then, bring a parachute when visiting….you’ll need one.
    Still breathing in Texas….
