    Wow, those are serious slides. Here is a new gigapan from yesterday that shows no fresh slide scars on the southwest face of Giant: gigapan.org/gigapans/87992/. The streambed of Roaring Brook was quite torn up, especially below the falls, but there was no evidence of debris flows.

    I haven't seen anything that indicates new slides on the Giant of the Valley, but it looks like Irene triggered quite a few other slides around the Adirondack High Peaks: adkbcski.com/2011/08/31/a-birds-ey e-view-after-irene Will open in

    It must have been quite a different scene here during tropical storm Irene. Access to this location is still blocked 10 days after the storm because the flood damage to Route 73 has not been repaired. I assume that the road damage is from water flowing over this waterfall! Trails to Giant Mountain from other roads were just reopened today. I hope the road and other trails reopen soon because I am curious to see if I can detect new slides on the side of Giant Mountain. On the day you made this gigapan, I made a little handheld panorama of the summit from the Nubble (photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=5eee2 d29-d29b-4b1a-9c8f-14ca41c15071 Will open in
