Very large avalanche on Henderson, crown close up

On 3/1/23 at 11am we saw a very large avalanche crown on the east side on Henderson Mtn., in the big avalanche path off the highest summit. It likely occurred late yesterday or early this morning. There was minimal new or drifted snow covering it, and it was snowing and blowing yesterday all day. I estimate the crown is 6-8 feet deep, possibly 10 feet in spots. Measured on GoogleEarth to be 700 feet wide. 1200 feet vertical. HS-N-R3-D3-O. Photo: GNFAC
