Natural Slide at Berthoud

This was taken in Current Creek, just north of Berthoud pass, on Sunday morning. It’s a natural slide on a southeast aspect, probably in the range of 40 degrees. If you look closely, it appears that it released at the small rock outcropping, likely due to the heat and sun. The layers that let go match what we found on a nearby SE aspect, that being ~8″ to a slick crust and then another one ~6″ down. You can see that it stepped down to the next layer fairly close to where it released.
