As you can see in the short timelapse above, the clouds did not clear for me but I am sure to go back — hoping for better skies.

One neat part of this hike was seeing the size of avalanches that ran this past winter with record snow levels. More snow can lead to larger climax avalanches and this was certainly the case in this drainage. The edges of the slide paths were quite difficult to get through with all of the downed mature trees. Also, the debris fields were littered with large braches and pieces of the forest. Powerful, scary and beautiful.

Play wisely 🙂
