Broads Fork Avalanche Debris
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Early spring scene of the annual avalanche carnage in Broads Fork meadow. This area is known for the huge glide avalanches which regularly release from the east flanks of Broads Fork Twin Peaks (just out of view on the right) every spring. We estimated the debris piles to be 20-30 feet deep in some areas. For comparison, here is a similar view of the area later in Spring after the meadow has melted out.
