Photo showing good overall Perspective of Mud Creek today, 5/21/17

These were taken around noon (an hour ago) by Inga Dorosz. She says it is very active and you can see the dust all the way up top. Follow it up, and it is visible in her first photo – the long shot.

  1. The positive: New surf spot !!


  2. I wondered those living at Sea View are trapped.


  3. I really don’t see a solution for this. If they can’t get up to drill for geological information, and it keeps moving, then how can they fix it? Is there any discussion anywhere?


  4. This is going to sound crazy, but it might just work. My neighbor, the Navy pilot, just suggested CalTrans treat the slide like an avalanche, since that’s basically what it is. He suggested explosives to dislodge the remaining loose material while it is still saturated, but since no one can get up there to set the explosives, use the cannons they use in Colorado, Tahoe, and other places, or make a deal with the people down at Vandenberg to fly a few sorties with low-yield rockets or bombs. Like I said “crazy,” but it works to save lives in other places, and it’s effective.

  5. If I’m seeing these photos right, is that new coastline that was just created? Reminiscent of volcanic activity on Hawaii. Truly geologic in scale!


  6. Yes, that is exactly right, Mark, and yes, it is quite reminiscent of Kilaluea.



  7. Wow, not quite like Mt. St. Helens but still very impressive given there was no explosion behind it!
