Avalanche Details

From the road I was sure that we saw two crowns in this area, but after looking at the photos carefully I am only positive that one was an avalanches (see photos). This area was getting a lot of wind loading so it is likely that the avalanches were just getting filled in and it was hard to see the debris because it was covered with fresh wind deposits.
