Re: updated photo's from Hwy 140

You know, I was just thinking and looking at those pics and wondering, does anybody happen to have any "before" pics? Might be interesting to see what the mountain side and river area looked like before the slide took out the road.

I would have hated to be there at the wrong time.

Re: updated photo's from Hwy 140

I heard today it's still falling. Unstable. Therefore Caltrans isn't going to touch it until it stops.

Hmmmm.... might make a great playground from El Portal to the slide and back.... maybe even the Mariposa side within reason.... some Isle of Man practice? No traffic! You didn't read this here, folks...

Actually this is a shaley area that really isn't too remarkable. What you see is not much different than when the road was there. The road follows the river line exactly, no real curve loss. (we MUST preserve our curves!!)

I have no idea how many tons of waste rock to remove is there.... probably in the thousands so you are looking at a long recovery period.... well into winter. Too bad, because this means 41 and 120 are going to be taxed beyond belief with traffic.
