As any of my friends can tell you, I am guilty of using the word 'awesome' in conversation with a frequency that should not be permitted by law (at least with concern to a 30-year-old man). This sight was truly awesome; I went on a hike north of Seattle in search of an area called the Big Four Ice Caves. What I found instead were avalanches. They sounded like thunder and looked like waterfalls of snow pouring off of the mountain. For a little bit of perspective, look at the pine tree in the foreground and then look at the little spiky 'hairs' on the mountain above the avalanche. Yep, those are more of the same pine trees.

This photo makes me want to chug a Coors Extra Gold and punch an Indian.

This photos make me even wonder if you find the coins. Under the snow it is mysterious.


I'm a Big Four Ice Caves collector/researcher. This is a good picture of the avalanche cone, and 2006 is a year for which I don't have anything equally good.

With your permission, I'd like to use it in this series:

ps - Nice catch on the avalanche!
