disregarding a posted WARNING of possible falling rocks reaching the lake

Just to underline the danger

On August 10 2012, a huge chunk of Ghost Glacier, high above Edith Cavell Glacier, fell into the lake and created a 6 foot high tsunami that engulfed the lower trail, the parking lot and a few kilometers of the access road.
Fortunately it fell at around 5:30 in the morning.
