MESSAGE
 Comments: We got almost to the very top of Titus Ridge, we began hearing heavy whumphing in the area we had just passed through. At first I thought we had triggered a small avalanche.Additionally we heard 3 more whumphing sessions as we carefully assessed the best way to safely get back to the highway. There were 2 of us snowshoeing, both of us very long term residents, with not a lot of experience on Titus Ridge in the winter.
