Mt. Owen Avalanche POV


Our friend Chris Miller had a pretty scary moment about a month ago.  Dropping in off the top Mt. Owen, Chris triggered an avalanche.  We’ll just go ahead and say that Chris was super-lucky and we are super-happy he lived to tell the story.  Please remember to play it safe out there!  You might think something is worth dying for, but when you’re dead, well, you’re dead. And your friends and family won’t be very happy.
