A small avalanche likely triggered by a Bighorn, tracks on the ridge

From email: "While on tour today above the canyon, we observed various snow surfaces. We found heavily windloaded slopes on E/NE aspects. Solar aspects began to develop rollers as rocks began to heat up around noon. We observed a small avalanche on E slope a drainage away, roughly 20 feet wide. While ascending a ridgeline at 7500 elevation, we had a massive woomph and crack that spread 100 feet from the ridge to a roller in the fall line." Photo: Tommy S.
