I went hiking up the Gold Creek trail this weekend and was surprised by a huge avalanche debris field at about 3.5 miles in. It came down Alta Mt and was so powerful that it went across the valley floor and up the other slope. Check out these photos and notice how the trees are blown "up hill" ...

Seems to have been a LOT of avalanches that I've noticed. Check out the one across from Alpental if you head over that way. From up on the slopes you can see the trail of trees extending down from the cliffs to the road.

Thanks for the photo's! I've moved them to the set group.
