Is there a route over Deadhorse Pass?  It looks much more "dead horse" than "pass".

The more I think about it, it's amazing how little wind it took to bring that stuff down.  I was wearing a cotton tank top.  The treetops were just gently swaying.  Deceptive.  It took us a long time to realize what was going on.  Insidious.

Yeah, interesting that those all come down now with the fire quite a while ago. I wouldn't have expected that trip to be that risky with wind.
