Colleen Burns, 35, was on vacation at the Grand Canyon when she accidentally fell to her death on Friday. Shortly before the incident, Burns had posted an Instagram photo of herself enjoying the view.
Burns was also a fan of DJ Kaskade, who posted a tribute to Burns on his website:
Colleen showed up in my life before the tidal wave of support had hit. And she always rose to the top of that wave. She had such an unmatched enthusiasm for life; the fire in her eyes and that crazy infectious smile. Colleen was destined to be a star among us. She never wanted to be looked up to – it was genuine kindness, and absolute nurturing of a community she grew, from a soul that only knew love.
People have also taken to social media to post messages of love and grief.
