Mill Creek Avalanche

We observed an avalanche on a southeast face while touring in the Absorokas. The avalanche appeared to be naturally triggered earlier in the morning as there were no tracks and my partner and I was the only party in the area today. The avalanche appeared to break on the ground, was about 200 feet wide and ran 600 feet. It was the only avalanche we observed today and was on a relatively shallow slope compared to other regions. We had observed widespread whumpfing and collapses throughout the day. Photo: M. Beck
