Comments
Saw this from below, down by the lake, after we skied off the ridge further to the east. Estimate the crown at 2', a couple of hundred feet wide and several hundred feet vertical down to the flats of Lower Red Pine Lake. Unclear when it ran, sometime in the last several days. Debris was visible but new wind transport was starting to cover it over.
