   A large 'snow roller' on a snow covered hillside near Wrightwood, CA on
  March 23, 2019.  These are sometimes called 'cinnamon rolls' or 'snow
   doughnuts', and are caused by a clump of snow falling off a cliff or tree
   into the snow pack below.  If the conditions and temperature are just
   right, as gravity gets a hold, it pulls the snow down, and it rolls back
  on itself.
