Grand Canyon National Park: Rockslide in Canyon: Aug. 23, 2012

This photo link just came across on the GCPBA list, thought I'd share as folks have been enjoying the rockfall story.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

We were up LC on August 26th, 2008 and saw a big rockfall. About 20 minutes later the river turned from turquoise to red.

Nice link Andy - this cracked me up "Visitors asked if this happens often – it depends on how you define often; it’s been happening for six million years."
