Glenwood Canyon Rockslide

This rock slide kept Glenwood Canyon (CO) closed for several days. Can you imagine driving along this road when the slide happened? Amazing.

As many as 20 boulders, ranging from 3 feet to 10 feet in diameter, hit the interstate. CDOT estimates the largest rock weighs 66 tons and some are as big as semi trucks. The largest stone weighed 66 tons. About 120 feet of steel guard rail and 100 feet of median were damaged. One hole in the bridge is estimated at about 10-by-20 feet.
