Denali Fault: Black Rapids Glacier

Detailed Description

View eastward along Black Rapids Glacier. The Denali fault follows the trace of the glacier. These very large rockslides went a mile across the glacier on the right side. Investigations of the headwall of the middle landslide indicate a volume at least as large as that which fell, has dropped a meter or two and is almost ready to fall.
