Salmon River #742 rockfall

Post by Banksia » September 27th, 2013, 4:13 pm

About 1.5 miles from the trailhead, midway between the first and second bridges, there is a serious rockfall.
It's fresh -- dirt hasn't washed off the rocks yet.
There's probably a ton or two of rock on the trail. It's easy enough to step over or through, but ...

Just look 20 feet up at the vertical cliff next to the trail, and see that there's a lot more to come.
Rocks are very cracked.
Observed this yesterday afternoon 9/26/13; called Zigzag RS this morning 9/27/13 and talked to someone in recreation; he said he's send someone to evaluate.
