Thank you for your patience and understanding. Our Maintenance, Geotech and Construction crews continue to work collaboratively and diligently, as much as safely possible in response to these rock/mudslides.

  1. Watching your travails from Paris, France with considerable concern and no little sorrow for Deetjens and the enviromental loss. Admiration too for your “frontier spirit” not only in the face of seemingly endless natural adversity, but, along with fire and flood of biblical proportions, raging plague, presidential Black Death in the form of a large and seemingly utterly destructive 💩”Dump”.

    Europe bleeds for you, you are not forgotten.💐

  2. Bless you Kate, these rather devastating pictures and updates really help us understand and to stay on top of what’s happening to family and friends.

  3. Thank you, Kate, for photos and updates. We are grateful to all road crews that clear the slides and keep Nacimiento Ferguson open also.

  4. Kate, giant boulder on pic 2 looks mighty dangerous. Is Caltrans/Super Geo team able to use UAV’s in areas it can’t hike to?
