Another view of highway US89 landslide near Page

This Google Earth image looking northeast from highway US89, shows the ancient landslide (a Toreva block) just above and to the left of the center of the image.  Today's slide occurred in this old slide block.

City of Page, Arizona is on the horizon at the upper right.  The Grand Canyon is in the background, just in front of the horizon.

Thanks to AZGS geologist Jeri Young for providing the image.
