A few days ago a road crew was working on a hillside that has slid a little bit onto a road leading into Elk City, Idaho. As one does, one of the workers was videoing the process when he noticed a few sticks and pebbles continuing to slide down the hill. This continued for a little while… then it got a little interesting.
The end result was 40 feet of debris on the only road in or out of Elk City.
Elk City is not exactly a major metropolitan area… population seems to be 202. Still, it’s undoubtedly a headache. Looking it up on Google Maps, it occurs to me that Elk City would be a fine place to visit… hell and gone away from anywhere else, smack in the middle of the NezPerce-Clearwater National Forest. But I think I might wait a few days.
