One man's trip to connect with nature ended in a horrific tragedy.

An Oregon man basically dissolved inside a hot spring at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming after accidentally falling into it.

The bizarre and fatal incident occurred back in June, when Colin Nathaniel Scott (pictured above) went to the park with his sister to find a spring to "hot pot."

According to a recently released report from park officials, the 23-year-old and his sister went to an unauthorized area near the Norris Geyser looking for a place to enjoy a natural soak.

But when the geology graduate reached down to check the temperature of the spring, he slipped and fell into it.

Deputy Chief Ranger Lorant Veress told local press the area the siblings ventured off to was very dangerous with boiling acidic waters, explaining:

Looks like Leonardo DiCaprio is pulling out the big guns!

On Thursday, Leo met with Pope Francis at the Vatican in Italy to discuss very important issues like climate change and the environment. Also along for the ride was L.D.'s father George DiCaprio and the global fundraising chair for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

The meeting is not too much of a surprise considering both the Pope and the actor are staunch supporters of reducing our carbon footprint in an effort to make the world more sustainable for generations to come.

In fact, last September P.F. made a great comment about environmentalism at the United Nations General Assembly, saying:

"Any harm done to our environment is harm done to humanity."

How well said!

While the contents of the meeting were private, we're sure the two had a great brainstorming session on how to stop the horrendous crimes against our environment. They're both passionate AND knowledgeable about the cause, after all!

On another note, can we stop to reflect on what a great year DiCaprio is having? Not only did the 41-year-old get to meet the Pope, but he also won a Golden Globe for Best Actor earlier this month.

Who knows, maybe Leo will top off his fab month with an Oscar win!

This is so sad.

Entrepreneur and environmentalist Douglas Tompkins died Tuesday in a kayaking accident in the Chilean wilderness he spent his life trying to preserve.

The 72-year-old, who co-founded outdoor apparel titan The North Face 50 years ago, was kayaking with five other people this week in cold water and bad weather.

According to reports, they were hit by a large wave and capsized. A military patrol boat found three people from General Carrerra Lake before a helicopter plucked out the remaining three.
