Notes
It cleared up and I took out my binoculars from our cabin on the west shore of Island Park Reservoir and noticed this huge slide in the bowl south of Reyes peak. Started at the little tree band below the ridge, takes out 1/3 of the bowl, and runs into the Blue Creek terrain trap. I assume this is a natural avalanche.
