avalanche country

i've never really been anywhere close to an avalanche, but i have been in the rockies when they've done blasting to cause controlled avalanche. and of course there's the scene in the old musical seven brides for seven brothers where they cause an avalanche. in both of these scenarios, the avalanche is wanted and turns out to be helpful.

but i feel like the skier lost in avalanche country, afraid to call out to see if anyone is out there. afraid that if i call out, yes, i might get noticed but i'm a whole lot more likely to end up buried. so for now, i'm continuing to wander thru avalanche country quietly and cautiously, hoping i find my way out before i get buried alive.
