Notes

Hikers reported a wet avalanche near the Dudley Creek trailhead. From the email:

"On Sunday March 31 we observed that several wet slides had occurred during the last week. The slides came almost down to the road beside the FS trailhead and into the backyards of two residences below the steep NE facing slopes. The trail was covered in debris above the uppermost house and their fence was torn up and carried into the yard. We spoke with one of the residents and were told that the slides occurred about a week ago and were the biggest they had experienced." Photo and obs: J. Cummins
