Comments
Two very large avalanches pulled out in Cardiff Fork. Cardiac Bowl went wall to wall and pulled out under all the rock bands and looks to have ran to the valley bottom (just a guess). A second piece also pulled out to the lookers right in the photo. Red pen marks the approximate location of each of the crown lines.
