MudSlide on Upper Animas

RIVER CURRENTLY NOT NAVIGABLE. Mudslide at 485.9, 200 feet long. The river was damned, a slight break has let water through. Railroad crews at work. Huge Debris.

Upper A mudslide

I'm not sure about the location you posted. Do you have a better description of the location of the slide? Thanks for posting.

"Estimated 2.8 miles North of Laplata-San Juan county line..." which would be something like three miles up river of Needleton. I think that would be around No Name- could be the same slope that slid into No Name several years back? Just a guess:
