Mudslides near 240th St. SE and Rt. 9 - Updated with new photos

The following photos were taken Dec. 24, 2012.

There were two distinct mudslides.

At time of photos a work crew was placing plastic sheeting on the area behind the wall's edge.

If you draw an straight-line eastward from the two mudslides, the line would go straight into the  Wellington Hills "Park".

I will refer to the two mudslides as "A" and "B".
 "A" is the one closest to 240th St. SE

Note: mud debris on railroad tracks.

View of mudslide "B".  Workers are seen at top of wall.
Mudslide "A" is not in this photo, it is out of frame to the right side.

Even closer, a look at the block wall and mud/sand interface.*

The two additional close-up photos were taken by Susan Boundy-Sanders

The color variations in the blocks and mudslide debris is because the close-up photos were taken at a different time of day when there was more sunlight.

Wow! What a mess!! And potentially dangerous to the railroad, the salmon-bearing Little Bear Creek below, and to traffic trying to go up the hill. Just imagine if there were 700 parking spaces and hundreds MORE cars trying to use that road!!
