Comments: 

We took these pictures Saturday morning but it was triggered Friday afternoon by a diagonal side hill cut from left just above the trees to right over the top.  It didn't run very far or deep but it slid nonetheless.  I put on 80-100 miles a weekend and will share anything we come across.
