A bit later in the afternoon, (Tuesday, 2-16-16) a fisherman witnessed another slide from in the Logan River!  

He posted on Instagram:     " Pretty scary moment while I was in the river today. An avalanche crashed down into the river just in front of me maybe only 50 yards up river.  It scared the crap out of me! " 

 

These low elevation wet loose avalanches are catching people off guard. Dog walkers, runners, x-c skiers and fishermen...
