Just read this on Outside's website. Apparently someone fell off Nevada Fall during Christmas:

The story starts by saying he was found above Nevada Falls and later it states he was found in the Silver Apron area which is way below Nevada Falls. Weird.

Almost every news story about the incident places it "near" or "above" Nevada Fall. The only one I've come across that doesn't get the location wrong, wisely doesn't refer to it at all. grinning smiley I gather that one of the first people who reported the story must have been thinking "Vernal" but somehow ended up saying "Nevada". Others who picked it up apparently didn't know the difference so they just kept repeating "Nevada".
