Avalanche

Witnessed the aftermath of the avalanche reported in the other MIN report. Picture with the yellow lines is before the avalanche (12:45pm) with the yellow representing the crown. Noticed the crown as we were on the ridge walking up sometime between 1-1:30, and the picture with the red lines showing the slide path and crown were taken around 2:15 after we had come down from our conservative line. Appeared to be a slough from up near the top of the 2000 ridge that carried down the gully above the crown, as well as tracks that went right through the area where the slab broke, presumably from the day before.
