MAJOR rock slide on Aufderheide!

I haven't yet found out where on the road it is, but I suspect it is probably in the north section near Cougar Reservior. A huge rock slide which will take some major effort to clear, as you can see by some of the huge rocks covering the road.

Hopefully it's better it happened now instead of in late spring. Perhaps it will be cleared by the time decent spring weather is upon can only hope!

Wow! That will take a while to clear. Well, some of the best of that road can be ridden back and forth now ...

Great road but little out of the way. Wonder where the slide is but it not high traffic road, it may take some time to clear it.

News report says it'll take an estimated 800 dump trunk loads to clear. Probably wont be rideable until late summer, or next.
