Possible Drowning at The Sinks

Just read this short article on a possible drowning late this afternoon in the park at the Sinks on Little River Road/73.

No details on what happened yet, but it is a reminder of how careful we need to be in the park rivers.

That is a very dangerous place to be climbing around on the rocks. If you fall in, your going to have a tough time getting out of a very bad situation. I hope that they were able to save this person. That would be such a horrible thing to happen.
