Too much fun in the sun. 

FAC forecaster's note: This is a great observation. Thanks to whomever submitted it. I laughed at the location name submitted for a while, but is indeed indicative/representative of the conditions right now. It's also a really cool sequence of glide crack to avalanche (even if it is a roof-avalanche). Glide cracks (and to some extent wet slabs) are difficult to predict, but we do know that warm, sunny days with no refreeze (or even a light refreeze) overnight are a driver for wet avalanches. Also, the debris pile appears to be enough to ruin someone's day. Really cool photo and location.
