Photo Information

Close view of landslides that did not reach R?o Paez
Photograph by K.M. Scott on July 3, 1994

Close view looking upslope toward several landslide scars across a deposit that came to rest before reaching R?o Paez; these are the same landslide scars in the previous photograph. The majority of the landslides rushed into R?o Paez, adding rock, soil, and vegetation to the growing lahar in the valley bottom. The largest landslides slid across the valley floor to the opposite river bank, and a few small landslides didn't quite reach R?o Paez.
