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. Just what that will look like isn’t clear. ?

#tbt, Dartmouth bonfire style

In case you missed it, earlier this month the college announced changes to this year’s bonfire in order to respond to safety concerns from the town of Hanover. This year’s Dartmouth bonfire is scheduled for this Friday, Oct. 26.
