Popular travel bloggers Meenakshi Moorthy, left, and Vishnu Viswanath have been identified as the couple who died in a fall from a cliff at Yosemite National Park in California.
Viswanath, 29, and his wife Meenakshi, 30, often warned their readers not to follow their example by posing for scenic photos on cliffs such as the one near where their bodies were found in Taft Point last week.
In a post on the popular @HolidaysAndHappilyEverAfters Instagram blog, Meenakshi warned her readers about the dangers of taking scenic photos on edges without railings because wind speed picks up considerably with height.
“A lot of us including yours truly is a fan of daredevilry [sic] attempts of standing at the edge of cliffs and skyscrapers, but did you know that wind gusts can be FATAL???” she wrote in the caption of a photo that showed her perched on a cliff.
“Is our life just worth one photo?” she asked.
Meenakshi called herself an “ardent adrenaline junkie” and she and Viswanath took the “wow-worthy photos” posted on their social media pages.
The couple met at school in India and married in 2014. They moved to New York and recently relocated to California.
More than 10 people have lost their lives — some while taking selfies — in the park this year, according to the Associated Press.
