Comments: 

The crown of this slide was about 60ft down off the ridge and was fairly well blown in, but it was obvious that it ran down to the bottom and deposited debris in the trees at the base of the slope, seems like it might have happened earlier in the storm because the crown was blown in, bad photo of the debris at the bottom and the top of the crown.
