>> Refer to this, June 8, 2016 post for the Fatal Fall at Acadia a month ago <<
Two deaths so close together is unusual in that Acadia averages but
‘a couple a year‘.
That the Park Service has accepted this as being ‘in the Park’
is telling. They are very reluctant to do so.
Folks that fall into the ocean from the Park
are NOT counted as Park-related fatalities!
Not all of “Echo Lake” is within the Park
(as you can see from map below).
That would have been quite a swim —
whether across or lengthwise.
If the water was cold you were asking for trouble.
“Echo Lake“, as it happens, is one of areas of Acadia associated with Nude Bathing;
i.e., it is said to have some Nude Beaches.
