Emerging at the edge of the slide patch, elevation 2750 ft. My best guess is that this slide fell during the 1938 hurricane, at the same time as the slide on the east flank of nearby Big Coolidge Mountain. No mention of the slide was made in the AMC White Mountain Guide description for this trail until the 1946 edition, which read: "...the trail turns R into the hardwood growth and zigzags with increasing steepness for about 1/2 m., then climbs into an easy old road leading R across the big Osseo slide." I recall climbing up the narrow slide swath above here back in the 1990s, but it is now mostly treed-in.
A particularly good angle on the long track of the eastern of Scar's NW slides, which I had visited the previous week.
Snow plumes were blowing off the eastern Scar Ridge peaks and Mt. Osceola. Luckily this south-facing viewpoint was mostly protected from the wind, allowing for a half-hour stay.
Heading back down the old road section.
