Geologists Walk On Moving Landslide

Amazing video of Wyoming geologists walking on a moving landslide.

This was posted three weeks ago:
Geologists from the Wyoming Department of Transportation are on site assessing a landslide that closed US 26-89 in the Snake River Canyon on Saturday and continues to move downhill, dumping debris into the river.
Besides the story of the landslide itself, the webpage also features an amazing time-lapse/low-speed video of the landslide in motion--probably about four or five times normal speed--and geologists walking over the landslide as it proceeds downhill. (First geologist appears at about 20 seconds.)

Pretty amazing!
