Falling ice from glaciers can kill!
Never enter an ice cave!
Ice on the Move
If you must approach the edge of a glacier, pick a place where the ice slopes gently to the ground. Obey all warning signs, but also keep an eye out for dangers that may not be signed. Since the glacier’s movement can cause rapid changes, rangers may not have had a chance to post new warning signs. Do not attempt to climb on the ice unless you have technical climbing skills and proper equipment. It is more dangerous than it looks!
The Dangers of Tidewater Glaciers
When choosing a landing/camping site, use clues such as driftwood accumulation, beach steepness and cobble size to judge what the wave action is likely to be in storm conditions. Make sure you will be able to launch from the beach in the morning if the wind or weather changes overnight.
