White River Slide, Mt. Hood
With winter upon us and several slides having occurred around the West already, I thought I would post this photo of a slide in White River Canyon between Mt Hood Meadows and Timberline Ski Areas. Just a reminder that we don not live and recreate in benign environments, and it always pays to keep your wits about you and be aware of your surroundings. Although it is easy to miss, NOTICE the two Ski Patrollers from Mt Hood Meadows investigating the slide in the lower left of the photo. This slide could have gone much bigger, but as it was, the crown was 30+ feet in spots. Stay safe and go get some turns!
