The two RV Gypsies
at the East Alluvial Fan Parking area
and the Waterfall in
Rocky Mountain National Park

October 1, 2012

From the parking lot labeled Alluvial Fan - Lawn Lake Flood (of July 15, 1982), the two RV Gypsies took the short path to the waterfall.

FLOOD FALLOUT: When the Lawn Lake Flood of 1982 raced past here, it dropped car-sized boulders about 30 feet below this spot. As the debris-choked water continued to release its load, the lighter rocks, gravel and sand were swept across the valley, creating a 42-acre alluvial fan. Sediments from the flood soon dammed the Fall River, forming a 17-acre body of water, unofficially called Fan Lake. Eventually the lake will drain to create wetlands, meadows and forests.

Some people just don't care about signs and think they are invincible because they are young. The two RV Gypsies stood on a smooth pathway beside the waterfall and watched a young person (shown in the photo below) climb the rocks, walk in the water, and go all the way to the top of the waterfall in a very dangerous manner.
