Just spotted this recent WS-N-R1-D2.5-O this morning. Likely happened in the pm on 4/11. Looks like it may have been triggered by a wet loose starting from the cliff band above. We hit a seasonal high of 41 F at Cascade Peak Wx station (10,874ft) yesterday, just visible at the top of the peak in one of the photos.
