The Earth Moved

Last weeks big wet did more than raise the water levels in the Murrumbidgee River and cause flooding downstream. In Namadgi National park there were several large landslips, including this one on Mt Tennant.

That vertical streak down the face of the mountain was formed by a big landslide sometime on Thursday evening.

It’s hard to get the scale of the slip until you know that the boulder (circled in the photo below) is about the size of a decent sized loungeroom.
