While we were photographing the beautiful rainbow on Bridalveil Fall, a rescue team arrived. Why were they there - a practice mission? An injury? The rescue team would not say. We would not learn what had happened until the next morning: the sad mission of the team was to recover the body of Todd Skinner, once of the best rock climbers in the world. He had fallen to his death, while rapelling off a spire out of our view, a few minutes before our arrival at the base of the fall.
