Comments: 
We watched this slide occur from across the canyon. Two riders turned around at the top of the hill (tracks visible at top of photo) and triggered the slide below. Sorry for the poor photo quality. A lot of slopes in the Uintas are still hanging in the balance and just waiting for a trigger.
