23-Year-Old Man Dies After Falling Off NH Waterfall
Zachariah Peterson's life was cut far too short when his camping trip went terribly wrong over the weekend.
According to Boston.com, the 23-year-old and his friend decided to set up camp on a ledge near the top of a waterfall along Tram Brook. The area was slippery and not authorized for activity. Peterson slipped and fell 250 feet down the waterfall around 11:30 pm Saturday night.
Fish and Game Lt. James Kneeland said:
“When you’re looking for a place to tent or camp, it’s probably better to just use one of the legal campgrounds that are located in and around the White Mountains. They’re developed for a reason"
My heart goes out to all who knew and loved Zachariah.
