Leadville's FUMC
Mon Sep 18, 2017 5:39am

The Methodist Church in Leadville is a very tall barn over a large sanctuary, with a very steep, almost A frame roof above it. By the entrance door is an avalanche warning sign for when deep accumulated snows on the metal roof trigger and slide, sending a large slab of snow down from a height of 50 or 60 feet. The sign is due to people having been seriously injured!

You see it at the 15.32 mark of the Mt. Massive piece. The building with the very tall steeple in the next frame is it from a distance. The sloped roof behind the steeple is what avalanches.
