Default White River Highway 35 carnage (pics)

I don't remember seeing anything about this in the news. I got the pics in an email...pretty amazing stuff.

Highway 35 Event November 7, 2006
Photos by Doug Jones who apologizes for poor quality, but it was raining hard, dark and nasty out there!! This was about 0800-1100 hrs.

Roadway by BSA at 0730 7 Nov 2006


Down River Side of White River Bridge. The top of the pile on the bridge is level with the upstream side of the bridge meaning about 15-20 ft of fill.


Tributary culvert on the north end of White River bridge. Road 48 is about 50 yds north, to the right. About 2/3 of White River is here.


Rather large boulder left on centerline of Hwy 35 in front of Boy Scout Lodge. Little White River can move big things when it has the mind. This is Gary about to fire up his D-8


Hwy 35 just south of Pocket Creek snopark. This is Clark Creek flowing along the Westside of the highway toward Newton Creek box culvert where it crosses the road. Newton Creek is now where it was in the last event!

Well I can now see why I had to Deture back to Hwy 219, and not use 35 like I wantd to, it's going to be a long drive on Wednesdys for a while.

Sorry to all in Hood-River.

The one thing that amazes me is that no one was hurt or killed in that slide. Look at the amount of rocks and debris and how long it stretches . It is a blessing

That's where our beautiful Gorge came from. Of course, the previous residents lost everything. What can I say? God offered them insurance.
