Visitors to the Quechee Gorge photograph the Ottauquechee River through a newly installed safety fence in Quechee #VT on Monday. The fence, installed last month following delays in September, is meant to deter suicide attempts at the tourist attraction. There is also a call box and signs with a crisis help phone number. The fence is scheduled to be replaced in 2022, when a permanent solution will be implemented alongside an extensive bridge renovation.
