Slump / earthflow at JMU campus, Harrisonburg

Posted by Callan Bentley

Yesterday I drove down I-81, through the heart of Harrisonburg, Virginia, and the campus of James Madison University. On the east side of the road, a big new slump / earthflow caught my eye. On my way back up the same stretch of road today, I pulled over and photographed it:

It’s this slope right here (Google Maps link), by the astronomy and physics buildings.
