Oak Creek Canyon rock fall

A 5-foot diameter boulder careened down a steep slope in Oak Creek Canyon last June, bouncing past the homeowner, destroying a pump house and damaging other out buildings,  before coming to rest in the rose garden without harming a single plant.  AZGS geologist Brian Gootee investigated the event and wrote a short report for our online magazine, Arizona Geology.
