Comments
We started a quick afternoon tour around 2:45 and on the way back to the car around 6ish we came across this fresh debris pile that lay across the skin track. While rather small in size, the debris may have knocked you off balance. Had you been there when this slide happened, you could have possibly been pushed off the trail and down the steep hill and through the trees.
