Comments
At the turnoff to go to Horsetail Falls (2 miles from the TH) there were 2 large and 2 smaller avalanches. Hard to tell exactly where they started but several hundred yards up the mountain for sure. From the lack of snow on top our guess is these happened yesterday and demolished so many trees. We have never seen so much snow up that canyon and avalanches that close to the trail where so many people hike/sled/ski
