Thanks to Yves for sending these shots below :

These Next few ones from a slow warm whether climax avalanche that likely happened  during Last Sunday's rain & warm weather spill…. it happened right beside the Lilloet river on the way to Meager Hot Springs at about 150 meter elevation…. effectively closing the road until late spring…unless they bring in some heavy equipment, the walls where 14' to 16' high and it took everything on its way…. pretty cool to see...

Natures work.... 100' of thousands of perfectly shaped ice balls.... !!
