That would be Nick Zentner. Here's a short "Nick On The Rocks" about the age of the Yakima River. It's so short it probably leaves out some important stuff.

Excellent video.  You're right.  We just barely got started.  I could have listened for another 20 minutes or more.  wink.gif  ~z

I was going to make a joke about doing something really stupid like hiking up along the crack, then I saw the people in the video romping around right on the crack.    After all, what could possibly go wrong?.....

That was a good shot of the rail cars filled with cement blocks, that are meant to stop boulders and stuff from getting to the road.  They look insignificantly small when compared to the size of the hill above.

My wife ended up flying to Seattle, instead of driving by that spot twice.  We had decided to do that to avoid general winter hazards of a solo drive before the crack was announced, but I am glad she did, even though she is back now and it still hasn't slid.   

Timing is everything.   I can imagine the bragging coming from those people playing on the crack.  And I can imagine the outrage of surviving family for anyone that doesn't have good luck on timing.

I'm thinking those were engineers and geologists and the vid was likely flown and recorded from up there, it's the best location for line of sight with respect to coverage. There are yellow obects of some kind at what look like key locations, I'd guess those are position transponders so they can map the creepage.

When I enlarged the video, the grainy result looked like people just jumping and running around, maybe even one guy on a bike.   That would be a pretty much fun loving and rowdy bunch of engineers and geologists.

Seems really difficult to see from the videos where the slide is cleaving on the west slope above the roads.  It does look like the quarry will absorb a lot of the slide, as some of the geologists claim, but it would have to be shallow and all move in the correct direction.  It still seems unlikely that the freeway won't be impacted... but by how much?
