Comments
The west side of the rodeo grounds on the steep rock cliff area slid. There was no one on the hill and no tracks as of yet this seasion on the hill. We rolled into the area about 3:30 pm were sitting on the east side and watched the slide come down. Our guess is simply the noise comeing into the area triggered it. The only other slide seen was the west side of the Prov Lake. Conditions are high and extreme caution should be used if going into the back country!
