Reaching back to June 30 when I was in Jasper National Park. We had taken a short hike to Mount Edith Cavell, a truly stunning location. As we took in the sights, we suddenly heard what could only be likened to a gun shot going off across the valley followed by a long, low rumbling. Straining to find the source of the noise, we discover that a small avalanche had been triggered and snow was cascading off of a cliff.
It was very cool to see and I still can’t believe how loud it was. As temperatures warmed that morning, we got to see two more avalanches as the early summer temperatures took their toll on the past winter’s snow.
