Comments : Looking up through the green waters of Browning Pass through a kelp forest. I took this photo at about 50 fsw. Snowfall is a very easy dive, and is usually the first dive we do when we stay with God's Pocket Resort. The site is named for the White Anemones which literally cover the bottom (like a new snow) and offers a moderately sloping bottom,. little current, good rock structure, and kelp forests.
