    Huge Hwy 14 Cedar City Landslide !!!

    There was a huge landslide on Hwy 14 this weekend just up Cedar Canyon from Cedar City. We were all there for the BMW MOA Fall Colors just a few weekends ago!

    Here's a link to an article and photos but frankly the photos don't do it justice based on other photos I've seen on Facebook. From the FB photos it looks like at least 1/4 mile or so of the canyon road is completely washed away by several hundred feet down the hill; it's not just a matter of debris falling on the road.

    With snow already on the ground it's going to be tough job to reopen it by Spring.

    Here's the link:

    You may be able to see better photos if you find my FB page.

    mods: I don't know where this belongs on the forum so move it as you see fit! Thanks!

    Great Road. . .

    WOW! Been on this one many times, and glad I wasn't on it when this happened. Yikes!

    For those who have never been to Cedar City and Hwy 14 - when it gets re-opened, just do it. . .

    GSA needed:)

    GSA could probably make a path! Was a nice road. Hope nobody is under that mess? Shovel ready jobs,...Randy

    Wow! We were over that stretch of road several times when we were there for the Cedar City Weekend Getaway this year. Hope everyone is OK.
