Avalanche in the last week off of north side of Kelso Mountain has considerable debris covering the road in the middle of the 1.4 miles of private land. It could be a while this year to get to the summer TH.

It is actually the slide path on the NE aspect of Kelso Mtn. The gully in the picture is much too shallow and the adjacent slopes are much too rounded to be the one on the North side of Kelso. Trees in satellite view look similar too to the NE slide path.
