I'm not going to be reporting you to Sarah. wink.gif

I do wonder about their capacity to effect remedy.

I zoomed in on the area with Google Earth "3D" view, and cruised around that hillside using the mouse, Unless they can secure egress through privately-owned land, they may have a real problem up there with access.
Add slope gradients to the equation, and it's quite possible that cutting a bypass route around the slide area may pose some serious engineering challenges. dizzy.gif

Flat, we'll be reporting you to the squirrel police LOL!

Seriously, I suspect they may have to place a bridge over that gully-- I'm with Ski, I just don't see enough territory above that to relocate the road, and the steepness indicates they can't cut into the hillside more to make a new roadbed.   If the solution is a bridge, that will be a longer and more expensive process...

On the other hand, it could give Summit a breather from the overcrowding of the past few years... it's been pretty abused, so perhaps a year off would help it regenerate a bit. 

The bad news is that I was supposed to haul a new toilet in there this year, so I suspect that just got a LOT harder...  Sigh...

Cheers!
