One of the amazing things on this last trip was the very large number of avalanches that we saw, wherever we went. There were avalanches in each mountain range and at every exposition. Some of them with run-outs like I've never seen before.

Everything has slid here.

Individual snow rafts seem to glide well into the flat parts with very little friction. They look more like mudslides.

Amazingly long run out (it continues well into the shadow)

Look at the crown on the one on the left. We estimated it at well over 5 m!

An avalanche with crevasses? That says something about how active the glaciers are.
