Avalanche caught on Glacier Point webcam

Just doing my normal routine of checking out the webcams and got really lucky!

I've always had my eye open for an avalache. Glad someone finally caught one.

I skied to Mt Watkins one March afternoon. That particular face of Clouds Rest was letting go every hour or so. Maybe not large slides like the one you caught on camera, but that face is notorious for them

When you do the Tenaya Canyon hike, you can see that those snow slides and summer loose rocks go right down into the river bed. Not a good place to linger.

I wondered about that area, figured it was a fresh rock slide but that makes more sense
