On August 17, 1959 the M7.5 Hebgen Lake Earthquake triggered a massive landslide that blocked the drainage of the Madison River and formed the modern day Quake Lake. This 360 degree panorama is shot from atop the landslide deposit. To the south one can see the landslide scar on the facing ridge. All around the camera location are the blocks of bedrock displaced during the slide - some that ran up the hill opposite the landslide scar are the size of small houses.

    I take students on geological field trips to this site on an annual basis and this is by far my favorite stop. Thank you for shooting a GigaPan of the locality.
