Nile Landslide Map
October 14, 2009
I am not sure if Jack (a geologist here at DNR who works in Forest Practices, who created this map) intentially put the Woodshed Restraint or not. Either way, it is a good term. As the landslide came down, it hit a block of material, probably an old landslide block. The weight and movement of the landslide behind it slowly pushed the old block (which on the surface is a small hillside). The block had many fissures forming and the surface ruptures trended north-south, lining up with the stress from the main landslide mass.
