Geo 730: June 11, Day 527: Rubble Removal

Here we see the excavator removing some of the debris from the rockfall. The operator may be simply loosening the pile up at this point; I don't see where it might be moved *to.* Normally, I'd expect a dump truck to be backed up nearby to remove the rubble. It's not terribly obvious from this shot, but the original runout extends past the guard rail on the far right. I can't tell from the photos I have, but it looks as if the rail was taken out entirely in that area.

Photo unmodified. March 9, 2012. FlashEarth location (Fairly confident about this one, but not certain).
