Creede, Colo. – — Police say a 22-year-old Kalamazoo man who fell to his death in the Rio Grande National Forest slipped while trying to photograph North Clear Creek Falls.

Hinsdale County Sheriff Ron Bruce says that Dylan Michael Jarsma was photographing the falls from different angles and moved closer to the top of the falls to get a better picture.

The fatal plunge happened Friday morning. The site in Willow Creek Canyon near Creede is billed as Colorado’s most-photographed waterfall.

The (Alamosa) Valley Courier reports Jarsma was vacationing with his girlfriend, and the couple planned to move to Colorado Springs.
