    That is an interesting map. Note the proximity of many of the red areas to National Parks. Also, where I really thought there would be a great many of deaths, tornado alley, there doesn't seem to be that many. The biggest single area is an area that has many National Parks, Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. Also, extreme heat and aridity.

    I know we have people die regularly on Mt. Hood....people who challenge the elements often are killed by them.
