on our way our of Stewart, Ca and Hyder, Ak we are driving out and the view was wonderful with glaciers everywhere. As we drove up to and by this area we thought we were seeing water flowing down, but as we got closer it was ice and snow falling from the glacier many feet above, maybe 2,000 ft. the whiter areas are where the ice and snow are falling. We were not able to park along this area to take really good pics. By the time we were able to park it was far away and the avalanche had slowed and then stopped. It was a great sight to see. The next pic is a small area and it had slowed down a lot and as we watched it stopped.
