Observed remnants of massive slide in Mineral Canyon viewed from across the Canyon from Mill D on Saturday morning May 11th. Attached is picture of slide. Went up Saturday morning May 18th to get closer look and due to the sheer size and distance thought it worthy to report. Once the slide hit the valley floor it traveled down the canyon floor for 1800 feet. Its worth a look for the amount of snow. Picture 2 is standing next to bottom end of slide.
