jasonnash NashDobrikVIEWS Happens every year. Can we see the photos? You can’t cure stupid 🧏‍♀️🤳 Was it a picture to die for...? Did she get the pic Damn..... I hope she had her mask on. Taking photos of the Grand Canyon is the most absurd thing to do. It’s literally too grand too large to be photographed. Just enjoy the vistas.

People cause their own problems. So sad... 😢 — It seems she was not paying attention. 😢 ABC did you actually report this accurately, are you sure she wasn't pushed But was she white? That’s the important question. I say we fill it in so this can not happen again 😡 When there are enough idiots to fill a book, you'd think people would be more careful
